With the new year I've decided to shop in my own on-site markets again to save money and to use up the stock. This time, however, I'm going to change a few things.
- I will purchase raw veggies for salads, apples, bananas, and milk each week.
- I will ALSO take advantage of truly useful loss leaders at the two stores I frequent most. Just the truly useful ones, though.
- I'm going to plan in the classic frugal meals (eg beans) right from the beginning rather than waiting until the last several days. My dh loves those kinds of meals, but I feel deprived.
- I'm going to list my daily stock usage in a way that will give you opportunity to guess what meals I've come up with using those ingredients. I'm doing this for two reasons: Because it's fun and because you might make suggestions that I hadn't thought of for that particular food combination!
