Now, how does she organize her rubberbands?
A trick with stale, freezer bread is to toast it. We have a wonderful bagelry here in town that makes the best fresh bagels, however, they go stale almost instantly...the trick is to freeze them...presliced, then toast them....
I once bought a upright freezer, thinking I would process my own summer fruit, freeze it and save all sorts of money. However, when all the fruit had been eatten, I was left, in February, with an empty freezer...I asked the extension agent what to do...many people fill their freezers with sale bread...which becomes stale, therefore the toasting knowledge..but then I asked, had any one done a study to determine whether you really did save any money freezing this food. Her response was that no. The only benefit to doing all this was if you could get a product you liked better than anything you could find in the store. That was it. I immediately sold the freezer. We now treat the grocery store as our freezer and pantry.
What I produced was awful. I would have put up with it if I saved a lot of money. It was also too much work.
