Approximate $ Savings: $30-40
I mentioned to my husband that I was going to buy a heavy duty tin crusher so we could crush tins easily to make more space in our garbage bin. He simply said "why don't you just use the can opener to open the other end of the tin and then it can be easily flattened by hand before you put it straight in the bin" ... too simple and why didn't I think of that!! Sometimes it pays to mention intended purchases as there might be a cheaper easier and more logical way to go instead!
