When it comes to saving money, it’s not just one thing that adds to huge savings, it’s tons of little tiny actions/methods that add up over time. I learned this tip from my grandmother, and while I know some of you already use it, I thought I would share, in the off chance it might be life changing for one of you.
Next time you finish a stick of butter, instead of tossing the wrapper in the bin or compost pile, place it in a ziploc bag in the fridge. Then, the next time you need to grease a pan, take the butter wrapper out of the bag and smear the leftover butter remnants all over the pan. You don’t have to use any additional butter, AND you get one more use out of the wrapper. Doesn’t that just make you feel all warm inside? I thought so.
Now go forth and save, fellow penny pinchers.
