A Peek Into a Frugal Fridge
You didn't think I was going to let you see the whole thing, did you? It really needs to be cleaned out!
My good blogger friend, Lyn, of Essential Thrift posted a list of what is in her refrigerator yesterday. If you've read the Tightwad Gazettes you will remember the article about what's inside a frugal person's refrigerator. The author, Amy Dacyczyn's, fridge was full of frugal things like a half-eaten apple, homemade foods and upside down bottles of ketchup.
Mine is not as frugal as it should be, but here's a list of what is in there this morning:
Apples, thanks to my sister in law who brought them to us from the mountains.
A bottle of water that was a freebie at the bank's customer appreciation day.
A partially eaten jar of salsa
Leftover canned mixed fruit in a covered plastic container
Light Sour Cream
A half eaten jar of my Mama's homemade sweet pickles
A jar of yeast
Tub and stick margarine
One full store brand gallon of 2% milk and a smidgen of milk left in another gallon jug.
Fat free Hazelnut creamer (yum! thanks to dh) Not frugal, but worth it.
An almost empty gallon pitcher of homemade sweet tea
A 2 liter Diet Coke
In the veggie drawer: home grown or free - squash, zucchini, bell pepper and okra
A bag of corn meal
A bag of self-rising flour
2 bags of shredded mozzarella cheese
A nearly empty container of light pimento cheese
Leftovers from Sunday Lunch: Pork chops, homemade mashed potatoes and a squash/zucchini/onion dish
1 dozen and a half eggs
And yes... way too many condiments. But there are always frugal bottles turned upside down in order to get it all out! And most of them were bought with coupons or were the store brand.
What's in your fridge?
