Ever since I announced my brand new Homestead Hack feature last week, the ideas have been pouring in! I’ve had a blast looking through all of your brilliant ideas.
What’s a “Homestead Hack?”
Good question. Here is how Wikipedia explains it:
“Life hacking refers to any productivity trick, shortcut, skill, or novelty method to increase productivity and efficiency, in all walks of life; in other words, anything that solves an everyday problem in a clever or non-obvious way”
Apply that definition to homesteading, and that, my friends, is a Homestead Hack.
Today’s Homestead Hack is…
A creative homemade tortilla storage idea from Jana’s Apothecary.
” Do you make homemade tortillas? Around here, we love fresh, warm, soft tortillas, straight from the skillet. We normally make 16 at a time, but where to put them when they’re cool? A plastic bag saved from a batch of store-bought tortillas or a new gallon ZipLoc bag maybe does the job. But those plastic bags are a little small and sometimes its hard to get the bag closed around my wonky shaped tortillas. (I’m not very good with the rolling pin)
It occurred to me that this vintage Tupperware cake carrier would make a great tortilla keeper!
Thanks for sharing your creative re-purposing with us today Jana!
