The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Beth:
I don't have a garage, so when the garbage is full and ready to go out, it has to sit outside until garbage day with no protection from the animals that could get into it. This is especially a problem during the warmer months.
Until garbage day, I take food scraps from cooking and/or from the dinner plates and put them into a plastic bag and just put it into the freezer. The food doesn't stink up my kitchen and I don't have to worry about animals getting into it during the week. It has worked for me!
