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.
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.
