So, Monday night I made a batch of my chilli-taco stuff. It was another way to have meals all week, and then into the weekend.
It was also a way to use up the canned goods that I have, I kinda need to use them up or store them somewhere warm before the cold weather hits.
Why? Trust me, it’s not fun trying to open a frozen can of . . . anything.
So, this is my way to save cash on groceries as I draw down on my stash of canned goods.
The only thing I had to buy was the pound of lean ground beef. Everything else that went into it I had on hand.
I had to use my largest pot, not out of necessity, per say, but rather because I don’t have a regular “large pot.”
All I have is a saucepan and a frying pan . . . then my massive stock pot (that is at Kim’s).
I will be able to put it into a smaller container in a day or two . . . which would be nice as I had to take out the middle shelf in the fridge to fit the pot in there.
Again, this is all in my effort to live as cheaply as I can, yet still eat well (sorta) as I continue to build my savings.
After all, my goal before the end of the year is to get to 50% so I could technically go buy the land and start to settle it (if I absolutely had to).
Every little bit of savings helps, as every penny saved is a penny doubly-earned; one when you earned it (income) and once again when you put it into savings.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
