Cutting Boards

cutting board


Save money on cutting boards by making them last as long as possible.  If you have a wooden cutting board, sand it down every 3 months to remove germs, and apply a food grade sealant.  You can also use a plastic cutting board, but they will get stained over time.  You can swap out frugal, thrift friendly plastic placemats, but be sure they are thick enough to protect your counter or that you place something under them to protect your counter surface.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some more frugal tips for cutting boards.


- Use a separate cutting board for meat.
- Buy a quality cutting board so it won't warp and bend, and can stand repeated refinishing to save money in the long run.
- Keep your cutting board smelling fresh by cleaning it with a paste made from baking
soda and water.  Rub it into the board, and then rinse.  Rub longer for wooden boards.
