Cutting onions without tears

This has nothing to do with saving money, but was such a great idea that I couldn't keep it to myself. My mom (who is kind of nutty) keeps a pair of swim goggles in her kitchen drawer which she wears when she is cutting onions. She swears that it works.

    Hi mamabyrd,

    This is too funny, I have never heard of using swim goggles. We learn something new everyday. If it works that is all that counts.... I usually keep my onions in the frig. And that works for me...

    When I used to work at Quiznos we used to put a piece of bread in our mouths. Who would have ever thought eating bread while chopping onions would help? But it does

    It did at Quiznos the only thing I can think of that is different at home is the type of bread. Italian sub rolls at Quiznos to loaf bread at home, that may have something to do with it I have no idea
