1.Line flower pots. Place a filter at the bottom of the pot to prevent soil from leaking out of the drainage hole.
2.Make a bouquet garni. Tie up bay leaves, parsley, or other herbs in a coffee filter. Drop it in your stew or soup pot, & easily remove it when you're done cooking. Recipes often suggest cheesecloth for this process, but a coffee filter is an easy-to-find alternative.
