Hefty: Kitchen Savings Tips #HeftyUltraStrong #ad

I spend a good part of my day in my kitchen. I love to cook and look for any excuse I can to host parties and over they years, I’ve learned some kitchen savings tips that often help me save time.

The first and most valuable tip I can offer you is to give some thought when selecting your trash bags. You want a trash bag that’s strong enough to handle the weight of your garbage. I keep an 8-gallon trash can in my kitchen and in order to prevent myself from running in and out all day long, I stuff it as full as I can get it. By the end of the day, I have 13 gallons stuffed into 8. And then I add more trash. It’s okay, Hefty offers active tear resistant technology for better puncture resistance. I’m sure you can imagine what’s going to happen if I don’t use a trash bag that’s strong enough to handle the weight of all of the trash I go through in a day. Over the years, I’ve tried just about every kind of trash bag available. I started with a cheap brand and actually ended up throwing THEM in the trash can. Now, I use Hefty Ultra Strong trash bags because I think the quality rating is above any other trash bags I’ve tried. They are strong, durable and can stand up to my test. I love the scented bags most of all. I have a cat. I actually have a dog too but I’m going to complain about my cat for a second. With a cat comes a cat litter box. Smelly litter makes me gag so I scoop all day long. Before I started using Hefty Ultra Strong scented trash cans, I had to rush the trash outside immediately after scooping. Arm & Hammer odor neutralizers and new invigorating scents help keep Chelsea’s litter odors at bay. Now, I can add her scooped litter to the other trash and save my aching back from the added pain of walking up and down stairs to my outdoor trash can. For those of you who prefer a scent-free option, that’s available as well. Where else are you going to find a trash bag that offers top-quality performance with a new lower retail price?

My next tip is that I compost my kitchen scraps, mainly my used coffee grinds. I drink coffee from morning until night and I decided to make use of the used grinds. I always have herbs growing in my kitchen. Every year I repot the old ones to sit outside and I start some new ones for my kitchen. I just started some new seeds and I used 1 part compost and 1 part organic potting soil. I embraced the tiny living movement a couple of years ago so I have to think small. Amazon has a 1-gallon compost pail for a low price if you’re looking for a nice space saving compost pail. I prefer to use smaller containers due to the lack of space in my kitchen so I use my empty plastic coffee containers with a lid. To keep the air circulating, I add holes to the top and side of them. I’m able to add the holes in the tops of the containers as pictured, but my SIL drills holes in the sides of them for me. It’s a cheap and alternative way to compost and it saves space as well. When you’re living tiny on a budget, it’s important to reuse what’s on hand as well as think about the size. I store mine out of sight on a really narrow shelf I keep pushed in a little nook in my tiny kitchen. I currently have my LED plant light going 24/7 on my newest batch of herbs and I can’t wait to start seeing the seeds spring up. There’s scarcely anything better than fresh grown herbs in all of my favorite dishes.

Buying a multi-purpose blender just makes financial sense to me. I use my blender for everything imaginable. I was able to get rid of a lot of products because it truly does it all. This saves me space and I enjoy eating healthier with fresh foods that I make myself. I make most of my own sauces including spaghetti. I buy fresh produce at the Farmer’s Market and I make a big batch at a time. I even make all of our fruit beverages as well as baby food. My blender grinds my coffee and espresso beans to perfection. Having a good blender really does save time and money in the long run. Look for one that does it all like I did and you won’t be sorry.
