Keep a permanent marker in the kitchen. There are so many money saving things you can do with it:
- Write the date you open a jar of sauce, meat, etc on the label. That way you never toss anything out because you can’t remember how long it has been in the fridge.
- When you stockpile an item, write the expiration date on the front of the product. This will keep you from letting items expire before you use them. (For example: Writing 8-11 on the front of a bottle of salad dressing that expires August 2011 when you put it on the shelf)
- Write people’s name on plastic cups at a party. This will keep people from getting a new cup because they forgot which one is theirs.
Can you think of any more things you can use a permanent marker on in the kitchen?
