No More Spilled Salt

Maybe I just need more practice, but it always seemed like I was spilling salt when I was measuring out a half teaspoon or a teaspoon. With all the baking I do around here, I felt like it was adding up. (Sometimes, I would even pour over a measuring cup and then pour the spilled salt back in, but I always felt a little silly doing that.)

Finally, I just poured a bunch of salt into a little jar. Now I can scoop out my teaspoon without spilling any.

I feel much better now, don't you?

Head over to Rocks In My Dryer for more great tips.


  1. Great use of a baby jar! Love the idea, I sense this will happen tomorrow morning when I am in the kitchen again!

  2. This is a great idea! I can't even count how many times I've spilt the salt. Ugh!

  3. Just thought I would follow up and say this is done. My salt is in a baby food jar and I have used it 3 or 4 times this week already! Thanks again.


Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
