If you are like me – I am far too busy and there are too many priorities to waste time or money in the kitchen. I have some really great ways to “save” in the kitchen.
Make sure to use a trash bag that is an outstanding quality bag while also being at a great price. Do not waste money on “cheaply” made bags – I want a bag that is strong, can hold all that I need it to hold without fear of breaking. Hefty Ultra Strong bags have great quality and a terrific new price as well as active tear resistant technology for better puncture resistance. I can rely on Hefty and use half as many bags because I can stuff these!
Until 5/30 you can receive a $10 Gift Card via Swagbucks by purchasing two or more Hefty Trash Bags at Target!
Make sure you have the right kitchen tools to work faster. I have always dreaded cutting a watermelon or dealing with a pineapple. Now I have this handy dandy watermelon slicing tool – takes three minutes tops to deal with an entire watermelon AND I am not using a large knife risking cutting my fingers/hands. And pineapples – I don’t know many people who like slice through that “skin”. But with the pineapple corer – you just screw it in and pull it out. The result is a fully sliced and cored pineapple.
Use Kitchen Tools That Make Your Life EASIER! There is nothing special about cutting up an onion – the process involves a knife… But you need to do it really fast before you start bawling your eyes out! There are two ways I make the job of chopping onions easier – I either wear plain old sunglasses or I wear a pair of the goggle pictured above which are specifically designed for chopping onions. Both ideas work perfectly and the job becomes so much easier. Every single person should keep a silicone spatula on hand – they are available at dollar stores if you can’t afford a more expensive one. They are invaluable. I can get every last drop out of my bowls – sometimes enough for an extra cookie or an extra muffin. This allows me to get every last drop more easily. When I use a regular spoon – I can’t get every last drop and it takes alot more effort to get as close to every last drop as possible.
