Don't buy those expensive bowl covers! Not only do they cost a lot, but most of the box contains unusable sizes. Here's a tip: go to the dollar store and buy a package (usually 10-12) of shower caps. They fit bowls to casserole dishes and at about 10 cents each, save a lot of money.

That is an awesome idea, i had never thought of.  I am gonna try it.  I have never used the saran ones, because they are too darn costly!

That is a good idea.  And somewhat ironic since my family always refers to those things as showercaps for bowls.   ;-) 

 

Edited to add that I buy my bowl covers at the dollar store and I generally get about 10-12.  And I like/need a variety of sizes.

We have used the shower caps also for bowls set on the picnic table during cookouts to keep the flies away.
