Did you ever notice how lotion bottles always have about an inch more of lotion when the pump starts sputtering? You’d think they’d invent something that allows the lotion to get sucked up from the very bottom of the bottle. Instead I end up whacking the bottle to get the lotion to settle more so that it will get sucked up normally again. After I get tired of doing that I eventually throw out the pump and just try to whap the open container on my hand to get out what I can.

I could probably just throw it out, but I don’t want to waste anything even though I have plenty in stock. I even try to stick my finger inside to get any lotion still hiding around the inside of the rim. Am I the only one that does this? Is that why people stare at me when I do this? Or should it be tossed just like anything with 10% left in the jar or bottle. That last bit is just yuck and dust anyway.

Some people wash out the container and use it for something else like storing sugar, dirt, leftovers, or coins. Sometimes I prefer the pump mechanism over some other squeeze or jar containers. I use them for my Smuckers jelly…up until a seed or blueberry gets stuck in it. That’s when I use a toothpick or anteaters tongue to clear it out. Anteaters really come in handy.

Not using that Tommy gun anymore? Cleveland is offering several incentives for people to turn in a working handgun, including $100 gas cards, Target or food gift cards, two tickets to an upcoming Cavaliers game or Lake Erie Monsters game, while supplies last. The buy-back program takes place Oct. 20 at Public Safety Central on 2001 Payne Avenue from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. All who give a gun back will also be entered into a raffle with a chance to win up to $1,000.

When I was growing up I used to love to peel out the white soft portion of bread and roll it into a ball and eat it. It was chewy and fresh tasting. I also used to put sugar on a piece bread and eat it that way too. I’m surprised I haven’t seen Honey Boo Boo do the same. I’ve outgrown eating that way and now I eat bread the normal way.

Speaking of bread, there are a good handful of bakery/bread outlets around town. Check them out for half off deals and other deals. Check their Facebook pages for deals. Be sure to get frequent shoppers at each outlet too.
