Reuse Pasta Sauce/Pickle Bottles For Food Storage
Usually every month, I ended up with 7 or 8 empty pasta sauce or dill pickle bottles. After I cleaned them in the dish washer, they were so sparkling clean and saying "don't throw us away." Then I started of thinking how efficiently I can use them, apart from their regular dry food storage. Here are the tips.
- I buy lot of vegetables when they are on sale (fresh beans at 99 cents/lb) and from Costco in bulk. Wash and cut in different shapes. Put them in different bottles and keep in the freezer.
- Make small holes in the lid of the bottle. It help to keep cut greens, herbs and cut veggies fresh. They need aeration.
- Soak different types of dry beans (chickpeas, red beans, etc.) Pressure cook them keep in small bottles.
- Try to avoid using plastic storage boxes to keep the cooked food. Use bottles instead of plastic.
- Healthy: Started eating lot of veggies and beans. Avoiding plastic. Avoiding canned food.
- Saving Money: On freezer covers/boxes. Not wasting even a single vegetable. Save money on bulk and sale. Save money on canned beans and frozen cut vegetables.
- Saving lot of time.
