Saving Money and #Weekend #Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #91!

I was approached by Cassie, the community manager for Dollar Shave Club, to write a post about "shaving time and/or shaving money." In case you didn't know, Dollar Shave Club ships top quality razors and grooming supplies to their members for a few bucks a month.

I know that saving money is an important topic for a lot of women, so I thought to share on how I "shave money" by managing my fresh and frozen food purchases well.

When I first got married, I thought to do all the shopping for a week or more and that this would save time. Maybe it saves time by not needing to go regularly to the store, but it doesn't save money or the quality of perishable foods. What would inevitably happen is that food would get forgotten in the fridge and perish. Or maybe it wouldn't perish, but the longer the food is kept in the fridge, the more vitamins are lost.

  • Eat perishable food as fresh as possible by buying less and more often.
  • Don't over-pack the fridge as food can get forgotten and leave space for leftovers.

How I store fresh and frozen food:

Butternut, Avocado and Oranges

Potatoes and Onions

Open condiments, ripe tomatoes, lettuce,
apples, meat, cheese, yogurt, drinks, etc.

Frozen fish, frozen vegetables,
ice cream, ice cubes and bread

Frozen slices of bread
in the toaster

You can store bread and croissants in the freezer if you aren't eating them right away. Do not store these items in the refrigerator as it dries them out. I have a button on my toaster for frozen sliced bread, but any toaster will do fine.

Meals at Home:

Croissant crisped in the oven with Hickory Ham,
Scrambled Egg and Melted Cheese 

Steak with Veggies and Scalloped Potatoes and
Homemade Red Wine Sauce

Hot Dog and left-over Scalloped Potatoes
from the night before
