Save Your Butter Wrappers

My husband teases me because I am so frugal, and he got a kick out of this one.

I save my empty butter stick wrappers in a zip lock bag in the freezer. They usually have just enough to grease a cake pan with. After they are used, I move them to another ziplock baggie marked with a large x and refreeze to keep them critter free. They make great fire starters for the fireplace or lighting the trash.


Cheap, yep, but it works!

Very clever. I had not thought of the fire starter idea. Thanks. (03/27/2010)

Good idea - sounds like something I used to do, except we don't have a fireplace. My hubby used to tease me about it too, but he loved my cakes, lol! (04/01/2010)
