No-Fail Kitchen Hacks to Save Time and Money

Whether you’ve only started living independently or are inspired to take your ‘adulting’ journey up a notch, knowing how to efficiently cook and prepare food while staying on a budget is a fundamental skill you need to master.

If you are a dormer under budget or a busy yuppie, you would be surprised to know that there are many ways to help you cut down on costs and time.

When it seems like finding your place in the kitchen is a daunting task, here are no-fail kitchen hacks you might find useful if you want to save time, money and effort:

Keep greens fresh by wrapping them with a damp paper towel
People love buying lots of greens with the full intention of eating better, but many of us still end up throwing them out after a few days. Stop wasting food and money by keeping leafy vegetables in a plastic bag or food keeper lined with slightly damp paper towel before putting them in the fridge. Paper towels absorb excess moisture from the greens, prevent slime, and help keep them longer.

Prepare and store single-serve portions
If you’re living solo, preparing dishes can be too tedious if you’re only making a meal for one. To make your efforts worth it, cook up a big batch then store them into single-serve portions in a zip lock bag or airtight container and store them in the freezer. You can stock up on different dishes for days and just take them out when you’re ready to reheat and eat.

Preheat your pan or toaster properly
The simple act of properly preheating your pan prevents food from sticking most of the time, evenly distributes heat and speeds up cooking time. Place your pan over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes, then put in a few drops of water to test it. You’ll know the pan is ready when water glides around like a smooth bead.

Invest in kitchen fuel that lasts long
Kitchen fuel might seem trivial but ensuring its quality and value for money is a life hack worth trying. Make sure your LPG tanks weigh exactly as advertised so you know that it will last according to your usage – less miscalculation, no unexpected budget changes, and guaranteed value for money.

You can concentrate on perfecting your basic cooking knowledge if your kitchen fuel is already taken care of!
