Savings Over Time Add UpSometimes, a way of saving money may seem too trivial to bother with. It is important to remember that the real savings occurs over time.

I had a rectangular one and the bottom fits inside the top when turned upside down. I placed some cardboard scraps in the inside and keep my lids to my other pans in this. I think it would be big enough for some kind of divider but haven't bothered. Since I only use the whole pan once or twice a year I don't have to unload it often.
