Normally I pride myself on being frugal. I say “no” to the adorable shirts that I don’t really, truly need. I pass by the $10.00 jar of walnut butter. Most of my fashion accessories come from Kohls or Target.
So where does this fit in?
The wonder known as Whole Foods sucked me in. I walked pass the produce, the cheese, the wine. Not a second glance was given.
Then I saw the Chia Seeds.
Somehow I felt that I really, truly needed this. Throwing my frugal nature to the side, I grabbed the $9.00 bag of chia’s and walked myself to the cash-out. Repeat to self, “You need this.”
Let’s be honest—I didn’t really, truly need this. But it sure was a fun addition to my morning bowl of oats! Crunchy & Nutty—and full of omega-3’s. The serving is 1 T., but I’ll be using 1-1/2 tsp to make it last longer. 😉
Today I’m back to my normal, frugal self. I picked up the book “Trail of Crumbs” for under $4 at the bookstore—so excited for a new read! 😀
Question: Do you try to be frugal with food/clothes, etc? I try to be as frugal as possible, never letting leftovers go to waste and trying to focus on the more affordable (and healthy!) food choices. And when it comes to clothes, I’ll usually try and “go cheap” unless it’s an item that I know I’ll wear over and over or if it’s something that I really, truly love. 😀
