Using Painters Tape Twice?

I've finally bought some expensive @ss rather impressive frog tape. Finally? Yes, finally. And I must say it is worth every half a penny that it cost. Half? Yes, half. I say that b/c I need to stretch every penny I have. I'm such a hustler that I can turn 1 penny into 2. Get out of here right?! You know that's what being broke & jobless does to you. Anywho I am finishing a couple of projects this weekend and have been using my new tape (I know you don't need a picture of it b/c you know what the heck I'm talking about.) not once but twice.



Yes I use the flip side of my tape. Don't you do that too? I mean in this economy isn't everything getting the 2nd go around? (For those of you giving used undies a 2nd go..that's just wrong on so many levels.) I must say though, that line is as crisp as the 1st time the tape was used!

Okay now my cheapness has completely boosted my "I'm Getting Over" ego. So I give it a 3rd go! Yes I did.


Yeaaaa...pretty freakin fug. Not a good look for a small box, but not bad if it were a huge wall & still a hella better looking than what the blue tape does.


So using the tape twice went FAB..3 times not so much. Have you managed to use yours more than 2 times? Anything else you've used over again? Let me know, I need to save as much $$moo-lah$$ as possible.

i'm still trying to use up my blue painter's tape, so i don't have any experience with the frog variety. but if i can reuse something (NOT undies) i will.

This post is funny! My husband worked as a professional painter at one time. He did teach me how to cut in without using tape. It's hard and sometimes I still have oops! moments though. I use glass jars that instant cofee and spaghetti sauce comes in. I use grocery store bags as garbage bags, and dog poop bags. I also wash out ziplock bags. I save a lot of garbage crap to use for crafting such as cardboard, ribbon, etc. We've always been broke, so we've learned to live with less. It just becomes second nature to us.
