Frugal Tip of the Day

When it comes to buying produce and veggies at the store, make sure not to overbuy. Keep in mind how much of the fruits will be eaten within a few days like bananas for instance. On those, buy two or three that are ripe and ready to eat and a couple that are greener. Those will ripen up after a few days just in time to get peeled for eating. The same goes for veggies. Check the dinner plans for the week and how much of those veggies will be used. With groceries getting more expensive every time we shop, not letting food go to waste is frugal indeed.

Plus this ->Place a bowl of sliced pears, apples or strawberries in the refrigerator so the kids or spouse can grab a few when they are looking for something to snack on between meals.


  1. Great tips! I really hate when bananas go bad :'(
