bowl shower caps

Upon opening my stocking this past Christmas I saw some plastic things with elastic. "Ohh, a shower cap?!" I said. (I actually sort of needed one of those for those days when there is no time to wash my hair.) My mom laughed.... not a shower cap, these were reusable bowl covers. "Ahh," I said, "interesting..."

Despite my initial skepticism...

These things rock!

They come in a set of 6 different sizes and work just like... well... just like a shower cap.

I literally use them at least once a day and it has been great not to fall back to saran wrap every time I turn around. The picture shows my veggies and broth which I prepped early in the day for chicken pot pie covered in their cute "caps" and ready to go.

those look handy--better than wasting saran wrap--i'll have to get some.

This is sheer brilliance! I've been plopping plates on top of all my covered refrigerator items, but we end up being a bit short on plates... Where do you find these tiny shower-cap-like wonders? I want to buy hoards of them for friends and family.

Thanks for joining us this week for Thrifty Green Thursday!

I do the exact same thing with actual shower caps, which I always expect my husband to bring home when he goes on business trips and can grab all the free hotel goodies...

I've got to get some of those as well. I like the idea of using actual shower caps for this purpose (thanks G & D!). And of course you could always wash them and reuse them if they got a little dirty, right?
