Lifesaver: Dustpan as Scoop

Another tip to save you time, money and some frustration.

I went to put something in the chest freezer the other day, and noticed a lot of ice buildup.  So I emptied out the freezer and got to work. Using a spatula I got most of the ice off the walls of the freezer.  But then I had a ton of ice in the bottom of the freezer.  After freezing my hands off for a while, I then realized I needed a scoop.

As I walked away from my freezer I bumped into my broom and dustpan and that was it!
I washed it off, and started scooping. Saved my hands and time! Perfect!
