When Being Frugal Sets & Make It Fun…

We  do not know what the future has in store for us only God knows. My husband has applied for several jobs since he lost his last job probably more than a few weeks ago. Were still grateful and thankful for all that we have. Like our home that we get to enjoy daily. All of the beautiful land that we get to look out our windows and see daily.

I’ve been reading all the greatest books about being frugal, eating healthy and going green so I am kind of looking forward to the next few months of what is in store for us. My husband and I are in our fifties and its important for us to be eating healthier. I tell myself cook and eat with olive oil, it’s better for you and if your first thought is it’s expensive. It’s not.  I was in Kroger’s the other day and a decent size bottle of olive oil was only 3.47.

I would usually pay 2.49 to 3.00 for a bottle of vegetable oil or cooking oil and buy Crisco when it was on sale. What an accomplishment! I’ve mastered the art of making fresh bread! It’s delicious and I thank my new-found friend, blogger and author Kate Singh at http://katesingh.com I you have never read her blog you should visit her she’s an amazing blogger and has a knack putting the right words in her writing to draw you in.

My hopes and dreams are that one day I can do this to others when they read my writing! My next project will be writing e-books. Not having Internet at home will give me time for this because at times we can let ourselves become consumed with social media and Internet which is not good or healthy. I can read all I want to and hopefully accomplish all I hope to read with my Goodreads.com challenge. Reading is my most favorite pass time, yet at times I don’t have time for it because of doing other things personally, in my home and by night-time or bedtime I’ll read a few pages and fall asleep. I have a fabulous looking garden this year and my husband needs build me something to sit on in order or me to able to sit in my garden and read. Next year I want and hope to have a bigger garden. I’m saving my pennies for it now and until then. I hope they have a coin star in this town some where because I’m going to need one.

I have many, many books downloaded to my Kindle because I knew this time was coming and I wanted to be prepared with my love for reading and now I will really be able to read all I want. Well most of the time! I have a thousand books on this and I’m anxious to read all of them. This will be fun and enjoyable!

With continuing to educate myself about being frugal, thrifty and saving and I can write and tell others about all I’m learning and learned. It’s not as if I don’t know anything about it. I grew up in poverty and my husband did also. Only I want to become so good at it we remain this way for the duration of our lives.

I think back and I’m happier with less money and I always have been. Money doesn’t make you happy and it never will! Yes, we have to have it to live day-to-day, pay our bills, eat good healthy family dinners and have fun spending time together. We can do that for free. We have plenty of land here to be happy on and about, 3 acres to be exact.

5 Money Saving Tips For Healthy Eating

  2. Foods like whole grains, lentils, beans, fruits and veggies give you more nutrition for less cash.
  3. Cook bean and whole grains, quinoa, spelt, barley and rice when you have the time, for fast and healthier meals later.
  4. Stock up in bulk on nuts and grains from bulk bins. Buy only the amount you need.
