Find out whether Penny actually practices what she preaches, or if she's all talk and not frugal. :-D
Anyhow, so this past week was a pretty decently productive week, that left me pretty exhausted, to be honest, since it involved lots of traveling from place to place, with 4 kids in tow, etc...
Here's what we did to save money this past week:
Frugal in the Kitchen:
Made pancakes for breakfast.
Finished making my homemade potato starch.
Made homemade ketchup.
Made some jaggery syrup.
Used leftover mashed potatoes, foraged allium, and on sale sardines to make a gluten free egg free "tuna" patty.
Made homemade gluten free vegan chocolate cake.
Made homemade gluten free bread.
Served buckwheat porridge for breakfast.
Made lentil based salad for lunch/supper.
Used leftover buckwheat porridge and lentils to make veggie burgers.
Used leftover chicken broth to make a delicious Asian stir fry.

The kids and I foraged black nightshade berries.

|My frugal shopping trip to the farmer's market.|
Stocked up on rice cakes for 50 cents a package, and gluten free corn flakes also at a very low price
Went shopping at the farmers market and bought at a super reduced price past prime avocado, kiwi, apples, cucumbers, beets, melon, watermelon, zucchini.
My books from BetterWorldBooks.com arrived
My cheap clothes from NextDirect.com arrived.
Made an e-bay purchase together with a friend, and ordered it together so we could split the shipping.
