This container of gel is as big as my head

I just bought one of those huge honking containers of Eco Styler gel from Sally's because it was only $3.50 and you guys say it's good gel.

How can I get this stuff into a smaller container? I tried using a spoon to get it into a spare travel size bottle I have, but that didn't really work...the spoon was too big for the opening. I have a small funnel that I also tried using, but the gel just sort of sat there.

Please :help:?

    The last time I moved gel into a smaller container, I scooped some onto my finger, scraped it onto the neck of the other container, tapped the container on my palm til the gel fell into the container, repeated til the other container was filled. Of course this only works if the other container is fairly small. You could also spoon some into your funnel and then tap the side of the funnel til it drops into your bottle. There will be lots of tapping and a bit of frustration, but it should work.
    Be Happy!

    You can try putting it in a bag and squeezing it into the other jar. Kinda like decorating a cake... but with gel. :-)
