Have you ever watched Rachael Ray's cooking show on the Food Network? One of her favorite tools to use is a garbage bowl. As she's chopping veggies or opening packages, she dumps everything into a bowl instead of making several trips to the garbage can. Sounds practical, huh?
You can even purchase one of her garbage bowls in your choice of colors for $20. And then you have to clean it up every time you use it.
Well, what if you had a garbage bowl that you didn't have to wash every time you used it?
Just grab a bowl while you're prepping food and line it with a plastic bag, like from Target or Wal-Mart. Make sure the bag doesn't have any tears or holes, or you WILL be washing it when you're finished.
Fill it up with your food scraps and garbage. Then lift the bag out of the bowl and dump in the trash! No muss, no fuss.
And now you have a clean bowl again!
How's that for practical?
