When Very Little Is Too Much

Household oil
Every now and again I find myself using a product at such a slow pace that I can’t imagine that I’ll ever run out of it. It’s not that I have purchased such a vast quantity of this or that product. Rather, it’s that I just don’t get through the stuff fast enough.

Consider household oil. The above bottle is very small and holds only for fluid ounces. Yet that bottle has lasted me more than seven years. And I probably use it more than most people. I use an electric beard trimmer and an electric hair clipper. I oil both of those devices every week or two. And I’m still nowhere close to emptying the bottle.

What other items could they will on such small quantity that might equally long to use up?
