Handy Tip #8

While cooking, do you use several paper towels to absorb grease from your food?  I used to but figured a less expensive way.

Start with a layer of newspaper, or brown paper bags, or do like this and use school papers destined for the trash.  Make it as thick or thin as you want.

I know what you're thinking.... ewww, that has germs on it. Don't worry, it will be covered up.

Now all you have to do is use one paper towel to cover those germs you were worried about. The under paper takes care of the excess grease. You could use two paper towels if you're still worried.

Since I have been doing this, I buy half as much paper towels. Yay, for saving!
