Frugal Accomplishments This Week

Hello y'all! It's that awesome time of the week, where I, once again, share what frugal things I did this week, hopefully to inspire and give ideas, as well as to share things that I do in my day to day life that don't necessarily need a whole post to write about each one.

  1. Hi! I'm intrigued by your revamped porridge into tuna patties meal. Where you using left over porridge? There was porridge left over at the weekend and I really couldn't think of anything to do with it!

    1. Yea, I had some leftover unsweetened buckwheat porridge. I added some mustard, soy sauce, tuna patties, minced onion flakes, and eggs, and fried them up. They were terrific, according to my kids. You could probably do that with leftover oatmeal also.
