Kitchen Quips

From cooking, to cleaning, to storing, things can get pretty messy in the kitchen.  Well, I have some quick tips to get you back on track!

Dry goods are a pain to store, the bags rip, the boxes don’t line up and things get messy and stale.  The solution; flip top plastic containers. 

Fill them with all of your dry goods, label clearly and revel in how much time and hassle they save.  They line up neatly, they seal tightly so you won’t have pest problems, and the spout makes it easy to fill anything from measuring cups to cereal bowls!

Keep a few pieces of unused non-skid rug padding in your kitchen; it is invaluable when using your electric mixer because it will keep the bowl from traveling across the counter or spinning when you turn on the mixer!  This will also work well to keep your cutting boards from sliding around!

Fill an old salt shaker with baking soda and put it in the produce drawer of your refrigerator.  The shaker won’t take up as much room as a whole box and it will keep moisture to a minimum which will make your veggies last longer!  No salt shaker?  Just put a few paper towels in there to help keep moisture in check, just remember to change them every week or so.  I’m Mrs. FIXIT and it’s just that simple!
