This has to be one of the coolest kitchen hacks out there. Saving money and eating a crispy yet soft baguette two days in a row... It's really a win-win. Even better, there's no reason to stop at bread. If you've got a lot of lettuce, and you want to keep it from getting soggy and wilted, the trick is to separate the lettuce with multiple sheets of paper towel. The paper absorbs extra moisture and keeps your lettuce fresh for longer. Add one more sheet on the top and tightly secure in a container for best results. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, the average American family throws out approximately 25% of the food they buy, totaling up to $2,275 each year. Clearly, little tips like these can really add up.
