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.

Thanks for the comment and the mention!

Zzzzzzzz...

After four hours at Tuesday Morning's checkout line today, I can honestly relate. Okay, maybe a nap AND a cookie.
