Frugal Blog Stuff!

I've found a wonderful new series on making the most of your food costs: "Living Like Kings." Frugal Homemaker Plus has five or so posts already, and plans to make this series a regular appearance all through 2009:

And Simple Dollar's good ideas on making the most of leftovers. Although I'm not too big on blenderized-meat patties, the rest looks good:

Wisebread addresses the other parts of life (and expenses) in "Waste Not, Want Not:"

Finally, a thoughtful blog, written by a single girl who has to watch her dollars...but it's also full of gardening, cooking, crafts (wonderful purses) and wisdom. Look for Brin at:

I feel especially virtuous mentioning these, since I'm walking the talk today! Beef stew is fragrant-ing up the air...made up of a sale onion, the leftovers from a bag of carrots, a can of mushrooms, some lemon pepper and a handful of cut-up beef. Tiny costs, 10 hours in a crockpot, and...yum. Serve it over rice, and I've got two meals that taste anything but frugal.

This is one of the most heartwarming videos I've ever experienced. You'll like it, too. A little kindness goes a long way.
