I'm back with another handy tip.
These cardboard containers are so neat.
You just pop the top and pour.
Trouble is, the container doesn't empty totally. It always leaves some liquid behind.
Well, I'll show you my solution for this.
Pull both end pieces loose where they are glued down.
Clip a corner off. You can do this parallel or adjacent to the top. It doesn't matter.
Now you can pour the remaining liquid out. Problem solved.
Doesn't my leek soup look delish. (It was!)
Now, don't just throw that container in the trash as is. That would take up too much space. Always reduce when possible.
Lay it on it's side and flatten it down.
It may take a little pressure but the bottom will fold down flat too.
See? Just think how much more trash can fit into your trash bag now.
I know this idea is common sense but I'm sharing it with you in case you haven't thought of it before.
Oh, and one more thing...you can buy these at the Dollar Tree for only...you guessed it, $1.00. Or if they are out, as they sometimes are, you can get them from the Dollar General for $1.25. Either way, that's way better than paying over $2.00 at the grocery stores. Double tip. Score!!
