Easy Measuring With No Clean Up!

This Sparked Me!

I purchased a few extra measure cup sets from the dollar store. I buy many of the frequently used products in large containers (oatmeal, cottage cheese, frozen fruit). I simply leave the appropriate servings size measure cup in the container for easy measuring and no need to wash after each use!

    Great idea - but check them for accuracy. Sometimes the cheap dollar store sets aren't accurate.

I buy the individual applesauces and I wash and reuse those the same way. Again, they aren't always accurate but they come close to 1/2 cup.

    I also use the scoops that come in protein powder as easy measuring tools. The ones I use are about a 1/4 cup, so a FREE measuring scoop!

    Great idea... Thanks for thinking of this. So easy to do and I always have to hunt for my measuring cup. emoticon
