I grab tablespoons, soup spoons, etc. It's the back of the bowl that works best. Seems as if we are both solution creative. Glad you think it might work for you.
As for deep jar diving.. I use a rubber spatula. In fact, did I mention I received a smaller red plastic one piece spatula - with a longer handle along with my box of Parchment paper?
It works perfectly in large peanut butter jars, mayo & other soft smearable items in jars where it's hard to get the last but. Even spreading cream cheese or sour cream and so on are easier. I try hard to waste not. Lol.
I reuse jars, bottles and plastic containers. And that means I use every bit of whatever food is left. Lolol.
Also, I have changed to products that use bags not plastic. From Friskie cat treats in square plastic jugs to Greenies in bags. I recycle the Friskie jugs for kitchen compost.
I have more then a few more clean jugs, all with screw on lids. Todays jug is on the sink and nce full, will be set on the back steps.
I may dump in the compost pile later today, or tomorrow. The lids keep wild critters from getting to the leftovers.
I have mice, rats, raccoons, possums and other critters that would love to get to the food scraps. Mostly winter visitors.
I also use them for hardware stuff: nails, screws, etc.
Oh, hummer feeder topic, sorta related as one of the feeders has been recycled to my desk.
It wasn't working for the hummers. So I cleaned and dried then set it aside.
A couple weeks ago I needed some large rubber bands. I only buy small kitchen, bathroom sized trash cans. But the bags I use do not stay open. Rather they fall into the trash can.
I bought a large bag of all sizes or rubber bands. I tossed them in my stackable supply drawers in their bag. Thing is I use rubber bands often. I am very rubber band creative. Lolol
Anyway, after messing with the drawer & bag of rubber bands...I glanced up and saw the "top filling" hummer feeder. And, WA! LA! The feeder is now on my desk, full of various sizes of rubber bands.
I use to bind my monthly budget/bills, etc. paperwork together - instead of binder clips. I only use those for projects in work. Once finished with the paperwork the rubber bands.
I also use 8 1/2 × 11 " ruled pads. Once I have used a pad up... I save the cardboard as backing for my monthly paperwork. Which keeps the paperwork flat not rolled up in a tube.
I also use clothes pins of all sizes all over the house. But especially the kitchen. For example I toss those wire wraps on bread, bagels, veggies, fruit, etc and just twist the bag and close with a clothes pin.
I use them on foods stored in cupboards, in the fridge and freezers - lg & small. They make opening the bags sooooo easy & quick.
Anyway... thought I share a few more shortcuts.
I know, I weird. Lolol
