Here’s a quick yet very useful hack for you all. It’s so incredibly simple in concept and execution that I highly doubt that I’m the first to do this.
I have one of those cumbersome forty pound rice bags and I always end up spilling some when I’m cooking, so I decided to come up with a solution. I cut two off-set notches in a plastic jar, one in the lid and one in the jar, creating a pouring spout. The placement of the notches are set in a way that when you screw the lid in completely, the spout is closed, and unscrewing it just slightly will line up the notches and open the spout. I used a rotary tool with small and medium sized cutting wheels.
Food waste no more!
