Sometimes a tip is so simple…it seems ridiculous to share! But trust us—this little storage solution will make cooking and baking less stressful…

Are you sick of trying to track down your measuring spoons? Store them in a small glass jar near your stove (we use a small canning jar that held some gourmet pasta sauce at one time). . .that’s it! Whenever you are finished using your measuring spoons, clean them immediately and put them back in their little jar holder. Don’t put them in the dishwasher or in your utensils drawer where they’ll be overwhelmed and separated by large spatulas and spoons. Make this little change, and you’ll never waste time looking for your quarter-teaspoon measure again! It’s also provides a cute decorative touch.
