I think it is too. It gets me out of my food rut. I use recipe sites like allrecipes, sparkpeople recipes to find recipes with the ingredients I have!

I will often go through my pantry and freezer, plug in the ingredients I find there and find a recipe in which I either don't need to buy any ingredients or have to buy very few--stretching the food dollars. Its a beautiful thing.

Definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over expecting different results

well it may be working for me
but it doesn't work for everybody
most of my clothes are 5-10 years old
started cleaning my closet the day before yesterday and couldn't stop crying
too many clothes were worn out
got rid of them
now that i've gain weight i'm in truble
almost nothing fits
what will i do???
try to lose it to get back in my clothes slowly
and maybe buy a cheap dress and a few clothes from a chineese store
too much trying to save and always being broke
how do i do it!!!!

yes i think i saved a few euros or more
store brand and store brand again
i paid only 51.00
got a few bags
bought pee , beans and okra all from frozen veggie section
i rember the beans were 1.49 the store brand and the next brand was 3,something
double price
the only thing i do not shop store brand is my little ones milk
and her shampoo and conditioner
i look at prices when i shop
up and down
double look
saves a couple of euros here and there
sorry no coupons in greece that are worth anything
why go with a coupon and save 2 euros on soap for clothes that cost 15,00 euros
when the store brand is around 7,00 euros
i also go shopping 1 time a week
everything i forget ( i'm only human ) and really need i buy from the local super market
