Use the waxed paper liners from cereal boxes instead of buying waxed paper, as it is much stronger.
I use it to separate pancakes, hamburgers, and to individually wrap chicken parts before freezing in a ziplock bag.
They also keep your counter clean when you are kneading dough.
If you have little ones visiting, it will protect your table from crayon marks, paint drippings, and play dough.
I open my liners so they lay flat, rinse them, dry them, and wrap around a paper towel tube. I secure them with a rubber band, gotten from a bunch of broccoli or a blueberry box.
