Silicone ~ Mats & Cupcake liners


    Ok so I know that this blog is about saving money not spending money. And I know I did a post last month on a spending freeze, but when you are back to spending money I have a couple that will save you in the long run.  Sometimes we make purchases that spend a little more in the beginning, because over time they will save you more. 

With that, have you heard of the silicone mats? Silicone is all the rage now in many items.  I wanted to share about two that I've been using for a while now and think are worth the money spent on them, which really isn't that much!

First up; Silicone mats! 

I shared a while ago on my IG feed about how easy they are to use, but I thought I'd share a little more in depth about them.  Why silicone mats? 

1. They are reusable, instead of using a different sheet of wax paper each time and throwing it away, you can rinse the silicone mats and store for another time! 

2. They make clean-up a breeze! No more cleaning those pans, just the mats! 

3. They are non-stick! You don't even need to spray them, just drop your cookies and you're good to go! No more using that spray oil!  

Second: Silicone cupcake liners: 

Ok, so once I was hooked on the silicone mats, I started to hear about silicone cupcake liners.  Guys! They are awesome! I have one set and want to buy another! They clean up well and work great for baking! All the good things with silicone mats apply to the cupcake liners too! 

I'm pretty plain and I wanted them to match my kitchen so I went with the grey/teal/white set.  But, I'd like to get either the rainbow or a set of a fun color for birthdays! 

Also, my sister found this cute idea on IG about using them for kids at Thanksgiving.  We tried it this last Thanksgiving and it worked awesome! They were the perfect portion size for the kids. The cups kept their food separated AND it was fun for them too! 

Sorry, the photos are real life, I was not planning on needing to use these at the time.  

So when you are spending again add these two items to your list! In the long run you will save because you won't be re-buying a product to use-up. Plus you'll be helping out out planet in the save process!
