Reuse Food Packaging

I save the wrappers the crackers come in, because they're a wax paper. I use them to wrap sandwiches for lunch and to wrap meat when I buy a large package of meat like chopped meat. Since it's only me and my husband, we won't use it all at once. I divide it into four for separate meals.


I wrap each quarter and put it back in the package it came in, then wrap the whole thing in the same plastic wrap. When I need some for meat balls I just take out the portion I need and thaw only what I need. This saves the meat from freezer burn, and saves money on wax paper and plastic wrap.

I think it is cool to reuse packaging; however using freezer wrap which is the old "butcher" paper really keeps the frost burn off anything going into the freezer. You don't have to use the "special" freezer tape; any will do; very economical.

I reuse cereal bags from the boxes. I never had a problem with freezer burn. Reuse. The New "A Penny Saved Is A Penny Earned"
