SHAME ON ME. In my defense, chevy man ruined that chili, btw, how gross is that? Can a man seriously NOT find the plastic wrap...

Did you have any food waste this week?


  1. Hi- found you from the BHSJW blog hop. I'm a new follower- hope you'll stop by and visit my blog.

    Man, I have so much food waste. My family DOES NOT eat leftovers. So either I end up throwing the food out right after dinner, or I feel guilty and save it, then throw it out a few days later. Sigh.... guess I need to work on the portions I make for dinner.

    Anyway- have a great week!

  2. Thanks for the follow. I am now following you too! Have a great day! :)


  3. Hi! Just stopping by. Following you from the Catch a Wave Wednesday. Would love a visit and follow back on my blog: Thanks!

  4. I usually go for making too little than too much, and just keep snacks or dessert around for any little empty spots. We don't have a microwave so its hard to reheat things a lot. I do make extra of, and keep, my unused mashed potatoes and fry them for breakfast the next morning tho. MMM!

  5. We were out of town last week, but the week before we had to throw away leftover Chinese, half a loaf of unused bread, and a quarter gallon of milk. Oh, and ants invaded our pantry thanks to our great drought in Texas, and we threw away at least $50 of stockpiled foods that were infested...

  6. Thanks for visiting, I am returning the follow. I try not to waste. I sometime use leftover veggies and turn them into soup or throw them in a stir fry.

  7. I hate to waste food, but we always do!
    On a complete side note, I have that exact same Food Network container, I love mine!
    Great blog, look forward to reading more :)

  8. Thank you so much for stopping by!
    I have just started blogging 2 months ago and I'm so happy to get new readers! It gives me inspiration to keep writing...
    I bet you feel the same way.

    Loved your blog, btw :)
    Have a nice day!

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

The winds of Change...

There came a time in our lives when our planning just didn’t make the cut. We recently moved in with family due to Chevy Man injuring his foot. I know a lot of you will understand that when you live paycheck to paycheck there just isn’t enough money to put aside for a rainy day. Now I am learning to pinch my pennies even harder than I did before. Chevy Man was in an accident on September 24th with a friend and injured his foot. The first doctors told us he broke his ankle and put him into a cast and on crutches for 8 weeks, with possible surgery. I was relieved that he wasn’t hurt more than he was, but what were we gonna do for 8 weeks!?!I called my Grandma and asked if it was alright if we stayed with her for a while. We were planning on moving to this area anyways at the end of the year so that just moved us faster and in a little less desirable situation than we would have liked. But I am so very thankful for my family. They are amazing.I packed all of our belongings into a 10x10 s…

[Guest Post] Summertime Blues

Today’s post is a part of the 20 something blogger blog swap. This post is written by Kelly over at Insert Clever Title here. Which by the way, why didn’t I think of that title?! It’s awesome, Kelly! She has a great blog and I am totally hooked. I have been reading it all day. She has a great writing style and outlook on life. I’m very excited to have her as my swap partner. This is the first every guest post here at Frugal Farmhouse, so I’m a little, ok a lot excited! Also when you check out her blog, you get to check out my post on saving money in the summer.

Something about summer has lost a bit of its magic for me. I don't know if it was the summer that I graduated from college, and was suddenly, jarringly thrown into the Real World, or if was something that had been sneaking up on me for years before that.Summer vacation doesn't exist for me anymore.It makes me both sad and, admittedly, a little bitter, to lose that sense of freedom. My reward for making it through all tho…
