I had so much fun writing 10 Ways Thrifty People Use Things Up To The Last Drop I thought that whenever I catch myself squeezing the last bit of usefulness out of an item I would share it as a a Use it Up To The Last Drop post.
Today’s use it up to the last drop edition contains a thrifty classic. One that I am sure pretty much everyone thrifty person does, but still I think it deserves a mention.
Whenever I use butter in baking I always use the wrapper it came in to grease the pan I will be using that day. I don’t go as far as saving my butter wrappers from those sticks of butter used in other ways for this purpose but if I am making cookie bars and the recipe calls for butter then I will use the wrappers from that batter to grease the pan I am using.
Not only does this practice save a tiny bit of money for the wax paper and the olive oil I would have used to grease the pan, but it does reduce trash some by reducing my use of wax paper for greasing pans and I like being green when ever I can.
How about you? Do you use this tip?
And now for the fun part. Share what you do to use things to the last drop in the comment section below so I might pick up on a new tip I didn’t know about yet!
