the cheapskate within
Although I'm not a savvy grocery shopper, wasting food bothers me to the core. I schedule "clean out the fridge" nights on our weekly menus and make entire meals out of the dabs of things I find there. I find uses for spoiling milk, dwindling produce, and stale bread. I grow my own lettuce--I love picking just the amount I need for a particular meal and not wasting greens that wilt before we can eat them. My new freezer feeds my inner cheapskate when it comes to avoiding and eliminating food waste.
Now that I'm looking to cut corners in new and creative ways, I'd love to hear your ideas. What are you downright cheap about?
