Secrets of Success

Storing Leftovers



When storing leftovers in the refrigerator, use old butter tubs and cottage cheese containers. When its time to clean out the refrigerator you can discard the entire container. You won't have a spilled mess in the garbage can or a sink full of dirty dishes.

  • Without a doubt, this is one of the environmentally worst suggestions I've ever seen on SP. (Plastics leaching toxins into groundwater and into the air, coupled with the waste of petroleum and filling up the landfill.) If your community has plastics recycling, please rinse and recycle the containers. Many communities recycle numbers 1 through 5, or at least 1 through 3. Recycling plastic is one of the best ways to reduce our dependence on foreign oil...and if enough people recycled, it could reduce demand enough to potentially lower gas prices.
