Aluminum Foil

aluminum foil

You can make those boxes of aluminum foil more frugal if you reuse your foil when possible.  Unless the foil has come into contact with meat, it is safe to wash it and let it dry. 


If you are going to make it a practice to reuse your foil, be sure you spend a few more cents, and buy a quality brand that will stand up to repeated washing.  You will save more money reusing it than by purchasing an inferior product.  Sometimes thrift means paying a little more at the beginning.
