FRUGAL FRIDAY 7-11-08

Frugality 101

I just love the aroma and taste of fresh herbs, however due to some injuries this year I was unable to plant them. To my wonderful surpise I happend upon some freshly growing Herbs in the grocery store. It was two large plants of basil for only $4.00. They were hydroponically grown so I keep them in a large glass jar and pluck only what I need. I change the water in the jar every other day to keep it fresh, and it has already lasted beautifully through this heat for about 3 weeks. When the plants seem to be coming to the end of their growing season I will pluck all the leaves off and dry them and store them for special meals in the winter. Another storage method for fresh herbs is to place them in a plastic baggie with water and store them in the freezer. When needed, just pull the bags out of the freezer and let them thaw.


Now it's your turn to share some great frugal tips for our home life.

I have joined the Frugal Friday Gang and will post on Friday at my blog the icon and a tip for grocery shopping.

I tried to add my link with Mr. Linky, but unless it has to be approved first, it didn't seem to work. :-(
