|And last but not least, I am taking heed to the much appreciated advice of my good friend Elaine at Sunny Simple Life who is a great example of thrift & frugality. As I read about her participation in the Thrifty Living Series, I am prompted and encouraged to "cut back" and find ways to live with what I have. One area we spend way too much money on is dining out. To spend $50+ on a dinner out seems so wasteful.|
Now don't get me wrong, we like to get out once a week and there is nothing wrong with getting the night off from cooking, but if we can put together a family meal with leftovers,then we are making every effort to save that money. I would love to find some recipes (perhaps from bloggers) using basic leftovers and sharing ideas for getting the most out of the meals we prepare for our families. Really with just a little bit of effort I feel as if I can save money.
Hope you are having a great start to your week.
