I think I am frugal. My brother in law says I am a cheap skate! I am proud to be able to stretch a dollar into $1.50! I got a great deal I just have to share. I stopped at Fairway because of an advertized good deal I wanted to take advantage of. I always check out the discounted produce because I have gotten a few good deals there. On this day I found a really good sized bag of plums for 99 cents. They looked OK, and I decided even if I got only a few and needed to juice the rest it would still be a good deal.
I got them home and took a look at them, they were perfect for eating. I shared some with my boss, and Phil and I ate as many as we wanted. Today I realized they were on the verge of going bad so I juiced them. I was able to can 5 quarts of juice and use the pulp to make fruit leather. I ended up with a very small bowl of "waste". Then Phil reminded me the chickens love fruit, so he will give it to them in the morning.
I think I got a great deal for less than a dollar.
Cheapskate or Frugal.? It doesn't really matter. I'm the one with juice to make jelly and a good batch of fruit leather.
