Brown Sugar Saver
I don't use brown sugar enough to use it up before it becomes hard. This little terra cotta disk keeps your brown sugar soft. You just soak it in water, pat it dry, and put it into the bag or canister. It says it also keeps coconut, raisins, and cookies moist. Nice.

bread works really well to un-clump brown sugar, but it doesn't last as long as far as preventative measures go.
The terracotta last for quite some time, and when the sugar starts to get a little stiffer you soak it and start over.
I also use a smashed up pot instead of the disks...works just as well (better if you use larger chunks) and they come with a lot of the plants you buy...just wash it first :) oh, and one pot can be used with the sugar and cookies (or whatever else you want to keep moist...
In my experience, a slice of soft plain bread does the same quite effectively. No water, just stick it in there.
