Introducing #FAFF: Frugal As F!*k Fridays. πŸ’°πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I've suddenly got a lot of travel-related expenditure coming up, and my hours at work are sporadic - some weeks I'll get 30 hours, others I'll get five. (Hospo life, amiright?) So what's a restless gal to do? (Hint: the answer isn't to put off travel till later - not on your life.) One solution: cut down on all non-essential costs...starting with groceries. 🍏 This tip came up in conversation with @abowlofplants the other day: TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SPECIALS. If it's half-price or better (like this here @pureharvest coconut milk for $1.75), then buy more than you usually would. If it ain't cheap enough, then don't buy it at all. One advantage of sticking to a plant-based diet is a lot of the bases are naturally inexpensive and nutritious (and loaded with protein, so don't even think of asking where that comes from!); my meals are going to consist of a lot more brown rice, beans, lentils, and oats, because bulk-bought grains, legumes and pulses are cheap as hell. And if you combine those with seasonal farmers' market produce, then you're laughing. πŸ™ƒπŸŒΏ So keen to eventually share my upcoming plans for 2018 with you all! Will reveal more when I've sorted my flights etc. ✈️ Have a great weekend, all!
