Measuring Cups

This Sparked Me!

Thank goodness for Dollar Stores and Garage sales. I pick up cups and put the appropriate serving size in my frequently used items so I just have to grab and scoop. I also use them to pre measure in baggies and keep them in a plastic shoe box and save on 100 calorie snack packs

    Yea, pre-packed snacks are a rip off. Better to buy in bulk, measure portions, place contents in baggies or small containers and save lots of $$$$$$

    I think the 100-calorie packets are one of the biggest rip-offs. If you compare ounces and prices they cost at least twice as much as scooping ourselves. Maybe the time it takes to scoop it makes us consider what we are eating more critically. Might burn a calorie or 2, also.

    Great idea -- not only do you save money, you can use reuseable containers and save packaging, too -- better for the environment!
