Jello

Everyone knows gelatin or jello is a frugal, thrift friendly food.  Jello is more festive when you put it in a mold.  Save money by removing jello from the mold without leaving any behind.

When you remove the jello from the refrigerator, place a hot towel around the bottom of the mold.  Let it sit for a couple minutes.  Then carefully ease it from the mold.
