The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Catherine of the Prudent Pantry Blog:

The small sections of an ice cube tray are the perfect size for freezing many leftovers so that food doesn't go to waste.

Some suggestions of foods that can be frozen in ice cube trays: leftover stock and broth, fresh herbs, leftover coffee, tomato sauce and paste, and applesauce.

Once frozen, the individual cubes can be popped out and stored in a freezer bag. One cube equals approximately 2 tablespoons, making it easy to use frozen leftovers in recipes.

    I have seen this all over Pinterest, and when I had buttermilk I realized I had decluttered my ice cube trays when we got our ice maker. I almost ran to the Dollar store to get more. But then looking through my cupboards, I realized I had silicone cupcake liners.

    They hold 1/4 cup – great size for my Buttermilk use. I put the liners in a cake pan, filled them, put the pan in the freezer overnight and then popped the buttermilk disks out of the liners and into a freezer bag.
