Here’s a great waste reducing tip from Mary, “Everyday Cheapskate”, published on Aug 31, 2011.
I am embarrassed to admit how often I throw out perfectly good food, simply because it doesn’t appear to be enough for any good purpose. Take tomato paste, for example. Often a recipe will call for less than a full can. So what do I do with the last few tablespoons of paste, or the half-can of sweet corn, or the rest of so many other ingredients that appear to be useless? I throw it out. Today’s first tipster has challenged me to change my ways. I’m getting a stack of ice cube trays, and I’m going to put them to good use…
Great tip! Now the challenge is how to store these cubes in a way such that they can actually be found once filed away in the freezer.
