Garbage Bowl

When cooking or baking, I often grab an extra dishwasher-safe bowl and set it on the counter within easy reach. I use it as my garbage bowl to throw eggs shells, wrappers and other messy items. Then when I’m finished, I simply dump the contents of the bowl into the trash and place the bowl in the dishwasher. It saves time by eliminating multiple messy trips to the garbage. —Jennifer Leisenheimer, Bemidji, Minnesota
