Quirky Tidy Tip

I am kind of embarrassed about this post, it is SO ghetto! My husband thinks it is a great thing to share, I am not so sure. I have a ton of projects going on right now, but I also have a very busy 11 month old, so they are not getting done as quick as I would like....enter this crazy post. I have a lot of weird, quirky habits and this is one of them. I somewhat upcycle my butter wrappers. This is another one of those tricks I learned from my Mother. If I use butter or margarine in a recipe, I fold up the wrappers to use for later. I have a stash in the fridge by the butter.
They really work well when things need a little grease, for pizza and cakes especially, I find they work better than using Pam. They have just the perfect amount of butter residue.
I know I am a total weirdo!?! Do you have any crazy quirks? PLEASE share so I know I am not alone, or maybe I am?


  1. That's not weird! Alton Brown from Good Eats actually tells people to do that. It does work REALLY well. :)

  2. I think this is a great idea! My mum used to do this too. I always use the paper for the thing I am baking and never seem to have any paper left.

    Best wishes,

  3. that's a great idea! too bad i'm always slicing up my butter in the wrapper so i never have a whole one left... perhaps i'll alter my methods.

  4. No way, not weird! I don't always want to use PAM and I don't always want to smash butter onto a pan. Butter wrappers are the best!

  5. Cool! Never would've thought of this. :)
