palliate

Word of the Day: Palliate Definition: To ease, reduce, soften Used in a sentence: Palliate

I woke up this morning on the East coast to the sounds of what I thought were riding lawn mowers. And then I realized that couldn’t be possible because this is the middle of winter and the ground is covered with snow.

About a foot of snow to be exact.

So when I arrived here last night after my long flight and saw a foot of snow in our driveway I figured I’d get my morning workout by shoveling snow.

Well it must be my lucky day because our neighbor man across the street is out there snow blowing our driveway!!

Will homemade brownies be a good enough thank you? I mean really, how do you re-pay someone for spending an hour snow blowing your driveway just to be nice?

The $20/$20 Challenge: Deb Shows Off Her Pantry {and Her Freezer Meals!}

Debbie1When looking over these $20/$20 Challenge submissions, I love hearing that some of my readers are finding some of my posts helpful! Deb has started using freezer meals and buys in bulk now, which is saving her tons of time! Check out her story:

Hi Mavis!

My name is Deb. I’m a recently retired health insurance auditor –ugh! Now, I help my hubby run his engineering consulting business, but spend most of my time homemaking and gardening –which I love. Debbie2We shop primarily at Costco plus sales at Krogers and Sprouts. We do eat somewhat seasonally thanks to our small garden. I have herbs in pots on the patio and this year we tried straw bale gardening with good results. We planted tomatoes, tomatillos, all sorts of peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, cantaloupe, and strawberries. Along the side of the house, we have blackberries and blueberries. This was an amazing year for tomatoes, tomatillos and peppers, but not a good one for berries –and the birds got more than their fair share. Debbie5Thanks to your blog, I’ve gotten into the habit of buying in bulk and preparing lots of freezer meals. I love how much time it is saving me! I do plan a basic menu for the week {just dinners}, but it often ends up changing as things come up; having all those freezer meals allows a lot of flexibility and really reduces waste and eating out. Debbie3Our goals are to live richly while spending less and helping out in our community as much as we can. Debbie4I’ve been reading your blog for over two years and it has been are real blessing!

Thank you!

Deb

Dig for Your Dinner – Growing Spinach From Seed

spinach

Do you have lots of shade, but still want to grow something to munch on?  Spinach is where it is at then, my friend.  Spinach is a cooler weather crop, so it’s one of the first ones I start outdoors.  It is great to sneak into smoothies, because it packs a nutritional wallop, and doesn’t affect the flavor to much.  It’s one of those leaves {unlike Kale} that actually has a really nice flavor, if you ask me.  It can stand alone in salads or be mixed in with other greens…and it’s awesome in quiches and sauteed.  Listen, just grow it, so I can stop trying to sell it already.

what-do-spinach-seeds-look-like1How to Grow Spinach

Growing spinach from seed is as easy as pie.  Actually, pie is an art form, now that I think about it, so that’s a stupid saying.  It’s best to start it right outdoors–though, you CAN grow it in containers indoor all winter long, if you have a bit of natural light.  I plan to sow my seeds directly outside.

spinach

You can do containers, garden beds or in pallets.  Plant your seeds about 1/2″ deep.  I like to drop a couple of seeds in each hole, just to make sure I get something to germinate.  Thin seedlings to 1 every 2″-6″ apart {depending on variety, so check your seed packet} when they are about 1″ tall.  Because spinach is a cool weather crop, you will need to find a shady spot for it if you plan to sow it throughout the summer.  You can plant seeds in between the rows of taller plants, like corn or tomatoes–or you can plant it in containers and move the container around as needed.

When is Spinach Ready to Harvest?

Once the plant is established and leaves are about 1″ across, you can pretty much pick off the leaves as you need them whenever the mood strikes.

The Next Generation of Farmers

harvesting lettuce

I was so happy to read an article on NPR the other day about America’s next generation of farmers.  Apparently, over the past several years, there has been a sharp decline in the amount of people choosing to become farmers.  According the article, the average age of America’s farmers is 58.3.  As farmers have aged, young people have not chosen to follow in their path.  There has been a bit of mounting concern that as farmers age and retire, no one would be there to take their place. Luckily, in areas like Maine, there has been an upward trend in the amount of young people choosing to start small scale farms.  In Maine alone, “farmers under the age of 35 have increased by 40 percent.”  That’s good news for those of us that like to, well, eat.  Until now, it appeared the smaller scale farms would be swallowed up by big business agriculture.

sumas river farm bellingham farmers market

The article mentioned that one of the things stopping would-be farmers from getting into the food growing business is the price of land.  It take a lot of seed money {pun intended} just to get started, and let’s face it, you don’t go into farming for the money.

carrots

Still, I love that being a farmer is making a comeback–even if the numbers are still small.  In an age where technology is everything, it’s nice to know that some people are still going back to their roots–literally.  Knowing how to grow our own food, and/or having local sources to get it from means we have more control over what and how we grow/eat.  Which, I think is a pretty good thing.

I totally think I could be a small scale farmer, if my circumstances were different.  I really hope more people start to see the value in it.

Stocking a Dry Goods Staple Pantry

Stocking a Dry Goods Staple Pantry

I get a lot of questions about how to start cooking from scratch, and what to have on hand in your pantry/kitchen.  Cooking from scratch requires an inventory of basic items that you will use over and over again in a lot of your recipes, in addition to more frequently purchased fresh/frozen produce and/or proteins.  I decided that the easiest way to tell you how to start a staple pantry is give you a basic list of dry goods.

costco rice and sugar

Stocking a staple pantry kind of depends on HOW you eat as a family, so keep in mind that you may have to tweak the list if you avoid certain foods {i.e. glutens, sugars, animal products, etc.} due to dietary choices and/or restrictions.

For your pantry, here are the basic must-haves:

  • Sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • Flour
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Shortening {or butter in the fridge if you prefer}
  • Cornstarch
  • Powdered sugar
  • Rolled oats
  • Honey
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Cocoa powder
  • Vanilla
  • Yeast
  • Peanut butter
  • Oil of your choosing {vegetable, canola, avocado, etc.}
  • Olive oil
  • Chicken/Vegetable/Beef Broth
  • Tomato Paste
  • Canned Tomatoes
  • Red Wine Vinegar
  • Rice {your choice}
  • Pasta {your choice}
  • Canned or Dried Beans {black, kidney, pinto…whatever your family prefers}
  • Maple Syrup {I prefer the real stuff, but it’s up to you}

How to Save Money at the Grocery Store  Buy Spices from Bulk Bins

Spices {this list can be tailored to personal preferences, obviously}

  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cinnamon
  • Chili Powder
  • Oregano
  • Cumin
  • Allspice
  • Nutmeg
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Bay leaves
  • Basil
  • Red pepper flakes

There are, of course, more items that I personally would always have on hand, but this is a pretty general starting point.  With this list,  you would be pretty good to go with most basic recipes.

weck canning jars glass pantry

If any of you are just starting to cook from scratch, I would love to hear from you in the comments section.  I was kind of tossing around the idea of making a list for basic kitchen cookware and utensils, fridge must-haves, etc.  Would any of you be interested in those kind of lists?

Selena5So far together we have raised $680 in the $20/$20 Show Your Pantry – Fill a Pantry Challenge! That’s almost $700 in a little over a month! Yep. My readers are pretty cool!

And now the fun part begins: Donating to Food Banks across the North East.

Weather permitting {we are optimists!} The Girl and I will be traveling through Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine in early March on an epic road trip. Our plan is to donate food and cash to the local food pantries in the towns we pass through. So if you live in one of those states and know of a food pantry in your area, please let us know ASAP. The Girl and I would LOVE to stop by and make a donation.

This has been a pretty awesome challenge. Raising money aside, I’ve loved seeing your pantries and storage setups. You guys are pretty inspiring. Keep those submissions coming! This raising money for food pantries is cool, and your photos and submissions are making it happen.

20 Tips for Frugal Living

20 Tips for Frugal Living

I feel like I am always looking for new ways to save money.  For me, the more money I save, the more I have to travel and use to do things I really I want to do.  The key, I think to living frugally, is to not FEEL like you are living without.  Most of the time, saving money just requires a little extra time and diligence–not sacrifice, if that makes sense?  If you are looking to shave a little money off of your monthly expenditures, or even better, free money up to do rad things, here are some tips {hopefully there will be some you aren’t already using}:

  1. Have a budget and stick to it.  Make sure to integrate frivolous spending/fun money into your budget, or you will feel like you are suffering.  When the fun money is gone, the fun is over for the month.  Plain and simple.
  2. It’s the little steps that add up.  There isn’t one big money saving tip that will yield tons of savings.  Be diligent about all of the little savings…pennies will turn into dollars in the long run.
  3. Embrace the DIY mentality.  YouTube is there for a reason–you can pretty much learn to do anything there.  Fix your own stuff, bake your own bread, do your own nails, etc.
  4. Turn money saving methods into hobbies:  garden, ride your bike for pleasure and transportation, etc.
  5. Embrace the library and swapping with friends.  No need to buy a new video game, DVD, or book.  Swap with friends or reserve it at your local library.  It’s free, and although it isn’t instant gratification, in the long run, savings will seriously add up.
  6. Sell what you don’t need.  Sell unwanted clothes at consignment shops and books and DVD’s to used book/movie dealers.  Old electronics can usually be turned into cash too.  Get rid of the clutter and turn it into cash.  Have a garage sale for a one time purge and earn.
  7. Buy used.  You can find really high quality clothing at the right consignment stores, and if you have even the slightest bit of vision, you can turn old furniture into custom awesomeness.
  8. Pay yourself first.  I’m sure you have heard this, but really, set up auto withdraw for EACH of your savings categories {Christmas, travel, savings, retirement, etc.}.  That way, the money won’t even be a temptation for frivolous spending.
  9. Downsize.  You may be able to afford the monthly mortgage on a bigger house, but have you ever added up the maintenance costs.  The bigger the house, the more maintenance.  It’s simple math–when there is 2 bathrooms, instead of 4, there are less pipes to fix, etc.  Downsize and I guarantee you won’t spend as much time at Home Depot.
  10. Move to one car.  This is a big one and it isn’t for everyone, but the savings are exponential, if you a can take the plunge.  You will have one less car payment, less insurance costs, less maintenance costs, less gas costs.  It really is astounding how quickly this will lead to savings.  Plus, if you are walking and/or biking places as a result, you may be able to cancel that gym membership.
  11. Rent instead of own your home.  I know, this is blasphemy to some, but hear me out.  Renting means zero maintenance costs {usually}, it means no property taxes, and it means no loan interest.  Of course, you won’t own your home in the end–but since very few people are staying put long enough to pay off a 30 year mortgage and then live out their days, the cost of home ownership might not be worth it.
  12. Eat at home.  This is a biggie.  I know a lot of you already do this, but seriously, you can easily spend $100 for a family of 4 at a sit down restaurant.  That is insane, if you calculate how many meals you could actually make for $100.
  13. Bring your lunch to work.  It sucks not to go out with your co-workers at lunch time, but the savings are substantial.  I make the HH lunch everyday, and if I ever sat down to add up how much that has saved us over the years, I think the number would be jaw dropping.
  14. Minimalize your clothing.  Clothing is expensive.  Having tons of it or keeping up with every fashion trend gets really expensive.  Choose a classic style and have enough, no more, no less.
  15. Stay out of the stores.  This is a big one.  I think shopping only at Costco this year will actually keep me from making those impulse purchases.  Target is particularly bad for this one for me–those stupid markdown end caps will get ya.
  16. Eliminate cable.  With Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Netflix, there really are plenty of options that will cost you about $10 a month to watch t.v.  Most cable bills are at least $60.  That’s $50 a month in your pocket.  Not too shabby.
  17. Cancel your gym membership and hit Pinterest for great body weight workouts.
  18. Plan errands carefully.  Plan your route down to the very last turn, and you  can save tons on time and gas.
  19. Cut utilities.  Get a programmable thermostat and set the temps lower when you are not home.  Wash clothes in cold.  Use a single bulb lamp instead of turning on the overhead light with 4-5 bulbs.  Don’t heat/cool the rooms you are not using–close the door and the vents to those rooms.
  20. Have a meatless meal once or twice a week.  Meat is expensive.  Having a meatless meal even just 2 times per week, assuming $5.00 for the meat can easily shave $40.00 off of your monthly food budget.

I know there are literally hundreds of ways to save money, right down to the tiniest detail.  Do you live frugally?   What are YOUR favorite tips?
