- If you don’t have a garbage disposal, place a colander in your sink at the end of your meal before you rinse the dishes. Then all the food scraps are caught in the colander and you don’t need to clean out the drain.
- Keep baggies of frozen cookies and brownies in the freezer for kids’ or anyone’s lunches. Place the cookies or brownies in the lunch sack and, between them and a frozen drink, you don’t need to worry about the lunch staying nice and cold.
