2. Small spatula
Another item that will help you save money in the long run is a small spatula. Every time I grab mine and use it to clean out an “empty” jar, I’m surprised at how much food is actually still left inside. Without this life-changing tool, I would be throwing away the remaining content, as I have done multiple times in the past.
Mayonnaise and peanut butter containers always have at least a few tablespoonfuls stuck along the side. And even tomato paste cans and pasta sauce jars have a surprising amount that can be scraped out.
After all, you paid for that food, and it would be a waste of money to just throw it in the trash. Any amount spent on a small spatula will quickly be redeemed by the amount of food left inside that you save!
