I think it’s time for a little fun. I have a few t-shirts of various sizes left in my giveaway stash; it’s almost time for me to order a new batch. Leave your favorite tightwad tip as a comment and you’re entered to win one of the Martha Who? Home-Ec101.com t-shirts. The giveaway closes at 11pm on Saturday February 6, 2010.
To get the ball rolling here are a few of my favorites:
- To store onions, use an old (CLEAN!) pair of panty-hose. Drop an onion down into the toe, tie a knot, and drop in the next, hang when full. The knots keep the onions from laying on one another and the hose allows air to circulate.
- If you have children, reduce the flow to the faucets they have access to, this prevents them from running and wasting water at full blast while they poke around doing whatever it is kids do in there.
- Those mesh bags used to store produce make great pot scrubbers. Just snip off the metal clip and scrunch into a ball. If you need it to stay together, use a rubber band.
I don’t care how quirky it is, I want to hear it.
