Frugal Friday: Stay Home
Posted By Jessica Fisher On July 15, 2010 @ 7:16 pm In Frugal Friday | 41 Comments
One of the easiest ways that we save money in our family is to stay home. Now, before you roll your eyes and whine, “Boooooring…,” hear me out.
I’m not saying that you should never going anyplace. But, if you think through your proposed outing, there may be a way to curb some costs. I loved reader Danni’s comment  the other day,
We were very tempted to go out to eat on Saturday, but didn’t want to spend the money. I had half a bag of spinach that needed to be used, so I threw together a spinach and cheese fritatta with toast and fresh fruit on the side. It was very satisfying and we were glad we didn’t eat out.
There are often many quick and frugal solutions to that entertainment or meal that you are craving.
There is no end to fun and good eats — at home.
