A fun summer find at Dollar Tree!
On Saturday we made a quick stop at Dollar Tree to pick up some items we needed to get for church -- cleaning supplies and paper goods. While browsing the kitchenware aisle I came upon the nifty item pictured above. These cute red-checked waxed basket liners are the type you might see in those classic red plastic baskets like they use at take-out places.
I could see myself using these in a number of ways, not just in the summer. They could be useful at Christmas time as well, for wrapping breads or for lining boxes or baskets to hold kitchen gifts.
Dollar Tree sells the red plastic baskets too, and I think this would be a fun way to serve hot dogs or hamburgers from your backyard grill. Lots of atmosphere!
As you can see, there are 15 sheets of red-and-white checked waxed paper in each package. That's a deal in my book for only $1. And a nice plus is the fact that this product is made in the USA!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
