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?
