4MyEarth Food Covers

This is an essential item to have in your kitchen drawers.  Food Covers are reusable, easy to wash (in the dishwasher or washing machine), keep your food fresh, will save you money and save from using and throwing away plastic wrap.  When we have guests over I usually make a salad or dessert in a large bowl and on occassions there is left overs.  To save time and washing up, I place a cover over the bowl and place back in the fridge for us to use later.  They are available is a range of sizes.

Purchase an Elf on the Shelf from The Book Depository, they are the cheapest I have found and offer free shipping to Australia.  Use the Elf on the Shelf Planner, notes from Elf, letters from Santa acknowledging good and bad behaviour, plus elf report and more.
