See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I don't have much extra counter space. I have found that I can place my meal plan & recipes in the plate holders in the dish drainer while I'm using them. Then put them back in the file when I'm finished. (This works great when I'm making a large holiday meal with around 10 recipes going at the same time and those helping need easy access to the recipes too.)
The other tip is for storing plastic grocery bags. I started putting them in an empty 12 pack soda box. A lot will fit into a box at the open end and can be dispensed through the hand carry opening. The thing that I like is that the box will fit in a lot of narrow cubbies especially under the sink. (best of all ... the box & bags can be recycled when you get too many!)
Geez there's another one but I can't remember what it is. I totally should make notes :)
