A nice little household frugal tip that I read on the Dollar Stretcher:
Whenever you open a can of fruit, instead of pouring the liquid/juice down the drain, save it in a salad dressing type container. Then add some balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, and spices to your liking to make a delicious salad dressing.
I also use it for braising meat, such as pork or chicken, and it makes the meat so much more flavorful. The store bought fruit flavored salad dressing can run about $4. You can make your own for a fraction of that. Enjoy your own gourmet salad dressing!

I thought this was a cool idea since our little one has taken a liking to canned fruit so we've been buying quite a bit recently. Seems like a good idea to use the juice for something instead of just pouring it down the drain.
