Of course, we all want to do all of those things. I'm trying to put together some thoughts on saving money, eating better and cutting waste.
I'm doing a series of things to help us all save money in the kitchen.
Here's something to consider:
Want to eat less fat, you and your husband? Does he put cream into his coffee? Well, you can wean him off the coffee cream (the 18% stuff) by buying the cereal cream (also called half and half or 10%), but if you've already done that, why not take out 1/2 cup of the cream from the new carton, store it in the back of the refrigerator, top up the carton with 2 % milk, and then, when the cream is down 1/2 way, take the amount you stored in the back of the refrigerator, add 1/2 milk, and return it to the carton.
Sure, you're not reducing the fat amount much, but you've started to do something. Keep it up, and you'll be saving a bit of money and cutting the fat.
Please pop over to:
for other hints. And if want to make a few suggestions for cutting costs and saving money, esp. in the kitchen, why not share it, either here or at the other site?
