And how about those jars of mayo and peanut butter? Do you try to get every last blob and schmear out the jar with a rubber scrapper? You just can't throw away a jar that doesn't look empty?

I'm notorious for that. I'll put ketchup bottles upside down in the fridge, just so I can get that last half teaspoon of Heinz Ketchup!

I'm with Jamie on this one. I'll pour every one a glass of milk and put the gallon back in the fridge immediately. (And then I'll put ice cubes in my milk to keep it cold. )

Although.. in my years in the grocery business, the delivery of milk and other dairy products are hardly kept ice cold. From dairy to tanker to factory to truck to your local store.. lots of times, pallets of milk are left sitting on a pallet waiting to be put away in another cooler.

Absolutely. Always.

Ditto on the cleaning out the jars thing. And it's the same with batter or anything else that gets mixed up and put somewhere else. It always makes me a little nuts to watch cooking shows and see how they don't scrape everything out of their bowls.

Ditto also on the milk thing. I was a dairy farmer's wife for 23 years so milk stuff is important to me.

Fuz, maybe we were twins in our last life.

Yup, me too. But I also do it with shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, etc.

I don't know about you, but I was raised by a frugal Mom. So, I still have the tendencies even tho I don't need to be so frugal now.

i confess that i'm totally baffled by my own cooking "skills" (or lack thereof). i can bake like nobody's business, and can make recipes up on the fly and have them turn out amazing, but ask me to cook dinner and i'm lost. i mean i have several things i cook often and that are really good, but other than those...yuck city.

I'm 'orrible when it comes to baking. (And yes, I didn't make that scrumptcious yummy cake I keep showing everyone. I enlisted the services of my dear sweetie that's an Ace when it comes to cakes, pies, pastries, biscuits, corn bread, etc. etc. )

However, I'm the opposite of Soupy. I can look at a pantry, fridge, and freezer and make stuff you didn't even know you had, that you've had before in a restaurant, and you'll want my recipe.

I think that's a good thing. No reason to waste stuff!

I DO do it way more than most people around me seem to tho. I assume I got it from my dad, who had a depression era siege mentality.

Put them in the freezer (if you have room) and they last a long time.. (unless you eat them first. )

The winner: Canada Dry
I also had a quest for a favorite ginger ale. And you're right on the numbers about the ones on sale, typically the store brand (Sam's Choice, Shasta,etc), and I had a tie: Vernors and Stewart's.



Vernors has a dry, aged taste, and now that Walmart carries it at a decent price, even better. Stewart's Ginger Beer (Soda) is different. Its Spicy! And its not made for chugging. Sip it or else.

I confess that my favorite creme soda (my brother Steve called it Cake Soda), is no longer produced. Its been replaced by a Red Creme soda that is just too sweet for me.

Barq's French Vanilla creme soda was a wonderful, dry, light, bubbily soda.

I'm not sure I can get Vernors up here - it hasn't always been available everywhere. My stepmom (raised in Michigan) used to cart a couple cases of the stuff back home to Missouri every time we'd visit her family. The Vernors bubbles always tickle the back of my throat and make me sneeze.

Ginger beer is a whole 'nother thing. Usually you can actually taste the real ginger (which, surprisingly enough, I don't really like). Love Stewart's cream soda, though.

IC that when I go to the deli to order sliced meats I always ask for the rarest roast beef. And when it's been in the fridge for more than a few days and oxidizes (turns all brown) I throw it away. My hubby is frugal and if he found out... he'd be appalled....please don't rat me out.

But does anyone, when making toast, or a sandwich reach past the first few slices of bread at the beginning of the bread sack, and grab a couple of "fresh" slices? Like you don't want the "bad" bread, you want to good bread. Hell, let the rest of the family eat the yucky bread.
I always do this. My husband will pointedly make "end" sandwiches; I don't know if he's being a martyr or if he's trying to teach me a lesson like, waste not, want not.
