Kitchen storage on the cheap

Salad-bar-and-containers-in-a-market-M88J2B

How does free sound?

Is free good for you?

'Cause it works for me.

Besides which, as everyone knows: that's the way we like it.

From now on, whenever you're in your grocery store of choice that has a salad bar, double cup every item and then double top it using the clear plastic containers furnished.

Nobody will notice or care, and when you get home you remove the pristine extra lids and containers and build your storage collection.

The containers come in at least three sizes.

Lagniappe: they all use the same size lid.

If one gets oily or funky, trash it: plenty more where it came from.

Clearly, this reversion to the kleptomania of my childhood is not something readers identify with.

That's not frugal, it's theft. Fail.

Yeah, sorry -- I'm with Tamra.

Joe, you know I love you, but...no... that’s stealing.
