I ran across this picture of a license plate on the internet, and thought that it would be fun to share it.

I was amused at first, but the more I looked at it, the more I wondered if it was really frugal? I mean a Honda Insight is environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient, but it's not cheap either. Also, a vanity plate isn't exactly frugal.

To be fair though, the owner may very well be frugal. It just depends on what their overall financial picture looks like.

Anyways, my meandering around the internet also landed me on an article that I think is written by our very own Jeffrey. It appears that he has succeeded on his $1 a day food challenge and is forging ahead for more! I haven't read all the entries, but of the ones that I did, they were certainly amusing.

In a way, he's a stronger man than I am because I don't think I can pull that off. Well, unless I had absolutely no choice, because subsisting mostly on bread, vegetable, and cereal? Ouch. Earned my respect right there. Big Grin

Oh, and I just came across a free minimalist e-cookbook from thestonesoup.com. This cookbook promises no more than 5 ingredients and no more than 10 minutes to make.

For those of you who are born with a spatula in hand, you may scoff at this, but if you're someone who is a bit more ah challenged in the kitchen like myself, this may be of interest to you.

The only downside is that I question the price of some of these ingredients.

    I totally agree that the license plate isnt really all that frugal. ANd I will have to check out the article. I am having my own grocery problems this month.

    It is funny how we can analyze a license plate! I never would have given it a second thought before!

    Eh, for all we know the guy will keep the car 20 years. That's frugal! (I know lots of those types - fancy new cars every 20 years...)

    Didn't you want to meet the owner and be able to ask? I figure those plates are meant to be a conversation starter. Maybe the owner is Frugal and meant to be the love of your life...or your coupon buddy...or something.

    You almost gave us a self portrait there, BA, but your head is cut off. Phooey. Wink

    Sorry Joan, if I wasn't clear about that picture. Unfortunately, it was just a picture I found on the internet, of an unknown camera-person taking a picture of a car belonging to an unknown car owner.

    And anyways, you're not missing anything in terms of what I look like in real life. Trust me. Wink

    LOL!...a couple of weeks ago my family had soy and veggie crepes because "there was no food in the house"...I had to improvise and all I had was 1 cup of milk, a couple of eggs, flour, some week-old veggies and texturized soy, 1 cube of chicken bouillon and 1 bar of margerine! ..so, yeah, it was frugal and the family ate them all up! LOL! In fact, they were wondering what we were celebrating!
