One of the best ways to save money is to make the most of what you have. You can easily do that with this one inexpensive kitchen tool that always saves money.
And just what is that tool? It’s your handy kitchen scraper.
A good quality scraper (or spatula, as some folks call it) will let you get the last little bits of food out of a container. A heat-resistant scraper (often made of silicone) is very useful for getting the last bits of melted chocolate, hot fudge or pudding out of your pan. It’s great for scraping out the last margarine, mayo, or peanut butter from an almost empty jar. And you can use it to spread frosting, too.
See how I use a scraper to save money in the video below:
You can easily get one or even two more servings out of a container with an inexpensive scraper and a few seconds of your time. That little bit you save from the bottom of a jar adds up to savings over time and reduces food waste, too!
