It’s easy to overlook little amounts of money you spend here and there. However, at the end of the month, you might notice that all of those little extra nickels, dimes, and dollars can really add up! What’s more, you may have experiences in which you feel like the second you purchase a new dental hygiene product, you run out and you’re back at the store buying more. Today, your Riverside dentist would like to talk about toothpaste. In addition to learning how to make it last, it will also give you some helpful ideas to apply toward other daily items in your life!

Stop Using So Much!

You might not realize that the reason you’re having such trouble with going through toothpaste at such a high rate of speed is the fact that you are using too much. Yep. If you’ve been emulating the amount you see on TV and in toothpaste ads, then it’s time to make a change. You don’t need very much. Just a small sphere equivalent (roughly) to the size of a small pea! This is one simple tip your Riverside dentist loves offering.

You Might Be Over Buying

Remember that if you get too excited about a toothpaste sale and you purchase 10 tubes, the majority of them are probably going to expire before you get to them. To avoid accidentally spending more money that you meant to (and wasting it, too) on this product, try to purchase only one backup at a time.

Squeeze Out Every Last Bit

Your Riverside dentist reminds you that there may be a little bit of toothpaste left (or enough for several more brushings). Use a toothpaste squeezer device to ensure you’re getting it all out of there!
