I'm not gonna lie. I've been so dang frugal and home-makey these past couple a days, it's kinda ridiculous.
Home-makey? Yeah....you know, in the groove of going the homemade route.
1-I made my own cranberry sauce. Super easy and fun. It's kind of therapeutic when the cranberries pop in their boiling sugar hot tub. I don't know why I didn't make them for Thanksgiving (maybe so I could have them all to myself-I'm so bad!)
2-I made my own rice flour. Again super easy. Throw some rice into a blender/food processor until it becomes a powdery consistency and then sift to eliminate any chunks that haven't been ground. I have already made pancakes with said flour.
3-I made hummus. Do you detect a trend? Easiness. Simplicity. Quick.
4-I got a FREE Venti sized Caffe Misto from Starbucks. Granted, you have to buy a bag of Starbucks ground coffee in the first place, but I didn't buy it. Someone bought it for me.
Did you know you could return the empty bag to a Starbucks in exchange for a free brewed coffee of your choice. Any size!
5-I've been walking or taking the bus everywhere. Yeah, this one is more out of absolute necessity since we don't have our car here yet. It's been over a month since I've driven a vehicle! That's the longest I've gone since getting my license 18 years ago.
6-My next homemade ambitions include making my own laundry detergent again. As well as garbanzo bean flour. I really need to get back to making detergent. It's actually a fun family project.<-----(click to see how)
1-what kind of frugal things have you done lately?
2-if you have your license, how long have you gone without driving?
