Weighing Bulk Spaghetti

Because I stock our pantry with bulk food I have a scale in our kitchen to weigh meal portions. Bulk spaghetti was always tricky to weigh until I figured out a simple solution. Simply cut out a grocery store mushroom box to hold the spaghetti while it is on the scale. I weighed a box and found that it will add 1/4 oz. to your total weight. The box stores easily right on top of the scale and lasts a long time. When it becomes ragged simply replace it with a new box. Some produce departments will sell you a few boxes if you ask nicely.
