Ready for another frugal living tip? This one I learned watching my mother wash and save margarine and Cool Whip and store-bought potato salad containers (no, I was not brought up with the pristine diet I consume now!), then use them to save leftovers and cookies. If you regularly bring containers from the store into the house – ours include coconut oil canisters, supplement bottles, yogurt cups (when I didn’t used to make it myself), and cottage cheese containers (from when I was pregnant and couldn’t eat meat) – you can save them for a variety of uses.
The video gives you just a few ideas – enjoy!
