Replace any oil in cake mixes, cookies, etc with unsweetened applesauce and milk with non-fat dry milk are great ways to save A LOT of calories without losing flavor. I replaced both in banana muffins and took them from 210 calories each to 150 calories without losing any of the flavor

Catch the drips that form down the sides of the olive oil bottle with this simple, inexpensive solution.
Center the bottom of the bottle on a square of paper towel. Bring the towel up around the sides of the bottle (like you were wrapping a wine bottle as a gift) The paper towel will only come up about halfway up the sides of a small olive oil bottle. Secure with a thick rubber band - I use the bands that come around broccoli for this.
Replace the towel and rubber band every few months, as the oil will eventually disintegrate the rubber in the rubber band.
