Perhaps, it has something to do with whether you were raised by parents who lived through the Depression, (I did), or people who think abundance is our right.
I knew it.
Wow I learned that tip from my Mother when I was about 4, she did it all the time. Can't believe people of that era did not know about it!
I do love Cooking Light. Just got a great deal on it for 2 years.
While I am in the 40 plus age group, I did indeed know that!
Doghouse Mom, your ice cube comment brought a belly laugh!! Love your humor!!
My mom still practices the thrift she grew up with in the Depression. My Dad could never refuse a "gift" of someone else's cast off(s), because it "might come in handy someday." I drive my husband nuts when I try to figure out how to reuse things that should be thrown out. It's just amazing how much the 70 and 80's babies don't know. They never had to learn.
