So you don’t receive an actual pay check for your homemaking efforts. But there are lots of ways you can “make” money for your household by saving it. Implementing a few frugal kitchen habits can make a small yet compounding impact on your budget.
During the Depression and other hard times in history, frugality was not an option but rather a necessity for survival. Even though I don’t have to be as frugal as my ancestors, it is a habit that keeps me aware of how much I use and waste.
As Easter approaches you may be in a tizzy with menu planning for your family gathering. Maybe you are trying to put a healthier twist on your usual Easter dishes. Maybe you don’t care about a healthy Easter and you just want to make sure there is food to eat. Or maybe Easter will be like any other Sunday for you.
Whatever your case, I think it’s important for you to remember to look past the nutrition labels of your food and look at the faces that surround you. Not only at Easter time but at any time.
Laundry is just one of those necessary evils. I don’t hate doing laundry, but somehow it seems to get shoved to the back burner and then I’m scrambling for some clean undies! …TMI… [My natural and affordable laundry routine is always open for change, but this is how I’ve been washing my clothes for the past two years.]
Don’t get me wrong: I have every appreciation for modern machines that have made my laundry chore soooo much easier!
Living a healthier lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to go around being dirty and smelly all the time because every personal care product will harm you in some way.
If you are comfortable living like that then I admire you for your choice!
I admit, there are times when I let my personal hygiene take a back seat. Like that summer I lived in Vermont and worked on a dairy farm. As long as I cleaned up good once a week I felt accomplished since the shower was grosser than the manure I walked through.
