There are several ways to ketchup a more frugal purchase. Ketchup is usually purchased in either glass or plastic bottles. You exercise thrift when you use every bit of the liquid in the bottle.  When you are no longer able to squeeze any more ketchup out of the bottle, you have a couple of choices. 

You can turn the bottle upside down in refrigerator, and then more will come out.  After that, you will need to put water in the bottle and shake it to loosen the remaining product.  Use this watered down ketchup as part of tomato based sauces, like spaghetti sauce.

You can also make your own ketchup.  The ingredients are not expensive.  It is just tomato sauce, sugar and some seasonings.   Rinse out your empty ketchup bottles and fill them with your homemade sauce.
