Living The Frugal Life

I just added a new link under Frugal Resources. My friend Josie told me about a great site called Money Saving Mom that is a fantastic resource for those wishing to economize.  Check out her site and let me know if you found any great ideas to pass on.

One of the ideas I got from Money Saving Mom, was to see if you can go one week without shopping just by living out of the pantry. We've done that a couple of times and it is a great way to use up overstocked canned goods and frozen fruits, veggies and meats that may have been hiding out.
It has really challenged my creativity and I've had fun trying to come up with healthy and desirable meals.  If you get a chance try it out for fun!

I am so uncreative when it comes to making stuff out of the cabinets. My husband can whip up some sort of casserole in a heartbeat!

So nice to have a cooking husband! This exercise MAKES me try new things, look up recipes etc... It's like a challenging homework assignment or something.
