Simple Savings: Cut the Pie into Smaller Pieces
When we went to someone's house last year, I was surprised when they brought out dessert and it was cut into very small pieces. My first thought was, "A bite for everyone!". But, as I thought more about this, they were small enough for people who just wanted a little. Those who wanted more, could take another piece if they wanted to. If I cut the treats I make into smaller pieces, or make the muffins a little smaller, or cut the pie into 12 instead of 8 pieces, we could have things last longer and have more opportunities to enjoy them. I would save myself time in the kitchen, too, since I wouldn't have to make as many treats! It is better for your health as well as your pocketbook.
