A plumber advised us to ensure there's a strainer in all our sinks and showers. You may not notice how much hair, etc. flows down the drain when you shower or shave, but your pipes sure do. We haven't had a clogged drain since we did this 10 years ago.

I love Greek yogurt, but it's so expensive! Now I make my own. I bought a mesh strainer from a kitchen store , I buy plain nonfat yogurt in the big tub, pour it into the strainer and let it sit over night. The water drains out and you are left with thick Greek yogurt. Add sugar free jelly. YUM
In addition to draining the ground meats, beef, turkey, chicken, pork, etc. Take the pot and put a wire strainer over it then run it under hot water and drain. This will wash away most of the fat. If you season while you cook, you'll need to re-season, because it washes your seasoning away too.
