Plastic Wrap
 
 

plastic wrap

 

Cheap plastic wrap is not always a frugal purchase.  It can be difficult to get it off the roll.  You can lose a lot of product trying to get a flat piece that doesn't stick together.

 

You can stiffen the wrap and make it easier to pull off the roll if you store it in the freezer.  If you can find a thrift brand that works when frozen, you will save the most money.

- Invest in some clear plastic storage containers for food.  They will eliminate much of the use for plastic wrap and pay for themselves in short time.
 
- Store food in bowls covered with shower caps.
 
- Find a good store brand, or find coupons for major brands.
