Make your own Coffee, you’ll save $1 a cup! P.S. you can make your own iced coffee too!
Buy the 32 oz. yogurt, not individuals and add what you like: nuts, granola etc…
Freeze your fruit and veggies! Why buy a frozen bag of fruit when you can freeze your own?! Freeze bananas, grapes, and berries. They’ll stay good longer and you’d be surprised at what you can make with them (banana bread, smoothies, fruit pops and more) p.s. frozen grapes are a great snack!
Buy local! Save your fruit and veggie shopping for your local farmers markets. If you don’t know where one is near you Google it, I bet you there’s one in a 20 mile radius of you, and if not… Go to the nearest farm and ask!
Use your coupons! I get a million coupons a day, sometimes there are some good ones. When you get to the grocery store pick up a newsletter and see if there’s anything that tickles your fancy.
The moral of this story is:
Everything in moderation
Cook your own food, it’s healthier in general
Don’t eat out as much
Pay attention to prices and deals that are going on in your area
and you’ll be home free, and maybe a couple pounds lighter when you get home xx
This past weekend I visited my Aunt who lives on Cape Cod in the middle of no where to do some good old fashioned thrifting. Here’s my story in a nutshell (or in a blogpost):
I made my way down her dirt road to find this magical place filled with inspiration and… chickens!
She has chickens! Along with the chickens in the back, her house was filled with shells,
drift wood hearts and orchids,
and a lot of head tilts of me saying “that’s cool, I should do something like that!”
I realized that weekend that spending time with your family is one of the most simple and most important things you can do, and there is absolutely nothing better then talking over a bowl of chicken soup. Check out all of my cool designer “Cape” finds here. This vintage Singer sewing machine is one of my favorites:
