50 Things I’m Thankful For | 2018 edition

The Frugal Girl

Fifty, because boy, getting to fifty really makes you start to think. As always, I never look back at my previous lists before making the current year’s list, and I list things in the order they occur to me, which is not necessarily in order of importance.

Our 2018 Financial Goals

Family Balance Sheet

Did you make 2018 financial goals ? Our 2 Main Financial Goals for 2018: 1 – Finish the will. We even bought an online package years ago, but have since decided that we will have a lawyer draw up our will, medical directive, and power of attorney documents to make sure everything is in place legally. We’d like to start saving for it in 2018, if possible. The Guidelines for 2018: 1. 2018 Update: We’re still working on this step.

My Personal Goals for 2018

Family Balance Sheet

Aside from a health concern with one of my daughters , 2017 was a great year, however, I was distracted by non-necessities, so my overall theme for 2018 is to use my time more wisely on the people and things that are important to me. Time is a commodity that you don’t get back, and I need to make the most of it while my kids are still young and at home. I’ll update you on my family’s financial goals for 2018 in another post. I have a confession to make.

Random randomness | a dead dishwasher,

The Frugal Girl

I took ’em all out of the freezer and they are currently roasting in my oven in preparation for stock-making. But hey, I am not about to waste the opportunity to make broth from local grass-fed beef bones. I have a bunch of unrelated things to tell you. So randomness it is!

Parmesan Polenta with Red Sauce

The Frugal Girl

In this case, the polenta has some savory flavorings, such as garlic, pepper, and Parmesan cheese, whereas the fried mush mixture I make is just cornmeal, water, and salt. So, I like to make this when I have other kitchen tasks I need to do anyway.

Freezer Challenge | Smoothie time?

The Frugal Girl

I’m making pulled pork today, so we’ll use the buns for that. I could make some jambalaya with the Andouille sausage. I need to make no-stir granola today anyway, so I could use some of the coconut in that.

Five Frugal Things | nearly free bagels, a bob for Sonia, and more

The Frugal Girl

Freezer Challenge | Bones. Many bones.

The Frugal Girl

I used some of the corn tortillas to make crispy strips to top our taco salads. I have walnuts, which I could use to make walnut/date balls. And I need to seriously make some broth because I have turkey bones… plus bones from the last side of beef I bought.

What I Spent, What We Ate | also, last week’s spending!

The Frugal Girl

We’re going to have ramen noodle bowls (not soup; you just use Ramen noodles to make something more like a bowl of pasta). What I Spent. By the way, the mystery soup from my freezer was indeed butternut squash soup. And I ate it all! Yay me.

Monday Miscellany

The Frugal Girl

So to me, it just doesn’t make sense to pay more for a very slight convenience improvement. You can’t really spill laundry pods but you can definitely make a huge mess by spilling laundry detergent.). I have random things to say, people!

Freezer Challenge | I made so much broth!

The Frugal Girl

If I buy some dates, I can make walnut/date balls. I could make pizza with the mozzarella. Although…I just remembered that I should make some fruity baked oatmeal ! I now have no bones in my freezer. Zippo. Zilch. Nada. A bone-free freezer. Yay me!

Tuesday Tip | Not sure if it’ll freeze? Try a small test.

The Frugal Girl

For instance, a reader wondered if she could freeze cooked fish cakes that she makes from my recipe. I’ve gotten several questions lately about whether or not this or that can be frozen. I’m happy to answer these questions if I know the answer, but sometimes I don’t!
