I never left mine uncovered. I used the big glass wide mouth jars and the plastic screw on lids. No odor, nothing but creamy goodness.
Frugal things today.....how about finishing up previously abandoned crochet projects? I've decided no new yarn until some of my old projects are finished. So, money not spent.
Made more fire starters. We use old egg cartons stuffed with dryer lint, and then pour melted wax on top. Break off 1-2 of those and you can get a fire lit easily. the cartons and lint are free. The wax is usually from candles I buy for the scent. I use them as what I call my Redneck Scentsy. Instead of one of those plug in warmers, I just put the candle on the wood stove, in the glass container it comes in. The heat from the stove melts the wax and releases the scent. Some candles give off scent for a good month or more doing this, some not so much. The spent wax is used for firestarters and the glass containers either re used or recycled.
found a great sale on ground beef--8lbs for $12. bought 2 packs. Thawed out 8lbs ground pork, sounds like I'm making meatballs tomorrow. I'll brown the rest of the burger and use it for tacos, casserole, etc.
