This one is so fun!
Grab a ketchup bottle before it hits the recycling.
Clean it, maybe have your kids decorate it.
Keep it in the pantry till you need it.
How do get the pancake batter *into* the bottle?
Well, I'll tell you how I do it. I use a 29 cent oil funnel from the hardware aisle of the grocery store.
Now, I'm not telling YOU to do that.
I mean, it's not like that's food-grade plastic or anything.
But, I haven't died... yet.
(Obviously, I have only use it for food - not oil changes. Funnels are perfect for adding powdered drink mixes to left-over 2 liter bottles, too. Just in case your pitcher and its unsecured lid tends to hit the dirt so-to-speak making a red drink kid pool on the kitchen floor. 2 liter bottles are kid friendly.)
Oh, and ketchup bottles are not only free...
but they are great for little hands, too!
We've all seen these manicure sets which go for anywhere from $8-25.

Gosh, I love saving money!
