Frugal Tip: Cut dryer sheets in half and reuse them!

I found this tip on The Simple Dollar and thought it was brilliant. I won't rehash the entire post but here is the general idea:

  1. Get a box of dryer sheets (cheapest available)
  2. Cut the entire box in half with sheets still in it
  3. Dry clothes and keep the half sheets until they have been torn
This may sound silly but adds up over the years. 3 cents per dryer sheet average cost (generic) can be cut by 50% using this method. It only takes a few seconds to cut the box and move on with life. Reusing is also better for the environment.

I am going to start doing this today. Why didn't I think of this?
