How do you store your butter? If you’re like me, you’re constantly slicing off a tablespoon here and there for baking or cooking, and then tossing that opened stick back in the box. But this is a good way to make your butter go stale or taste off quickly. Enter a smart, tiny solution: The Butter Saver.

The Butter Saver is such a smart little idea. It’s a silicone cap designed to fit over the end of a standard-sized (1 1/4 inches wide) stick of butter. It stretches a bit, and fits snugly. When you cut the end off a stick, you can just cap it and throw it back in the cheese drawer.

But that’s not all! The little cap holds exactly 1 tablespoon of butter. So if you need another tablespoon of butter, just use the cap as a guide for slicing.

It’s a small thing, but it saves waste and space in the fridge. Two thumbs up!
