Brainy Frugality in a Bag ~The Art of shopping!


Its wonderful to see more and more grocery stores offering 'individual' loosely sold vegetables as well as meat and cheese products. Why is that wonderful? Because, its brainy. Buying in bulk is not really frugal.

It is much more frugal to buy only what you need for a single meal and at the same time keep only the very basics stocked up in the pantry. *See the side bar on this blog for the basic pantry list.

In this busy life, which we all seem to be leading, we have to think on our feet that means come up with an idea for dinner at the last minute either for just our self or family and friends. As an example, if you know what you have at home in the pantry, then all you may to grab is either one or two zucchini/asparagus and and a few mushrooms on your way home...

For instance, drop by the grocer and grab a zucchini, a green pepper and a few mushrooms, serve with pasta. When everyone comes to the table, it will look like you schemed dinner all day long.
