Shopping my own books is my attempt to curb my temptation to buy new books. The exception is this cookbook I read over the weekend. I was desperate for dinner inspiration, and after reading it I'm totally inspired. Worth it.
I always buy used books on Amazon to save a few dollars.
One day last week I did a big FIFO on steroids session. I turned out...
homemade granola bars
blueberry oven French toast - My kids loved this!
I cut back on the sugar and added the blueberries.
Those are end pieces of bread I'd been saving in the freezer. I get such a rush from not wasting food! We got 2 breakfasts out of that French toast.
Using what we have, frugality, thriftiness, resourcefulness....whatever you want to call it - these qualities are not generally ingrained in my generation. But I believe they are so valuable because they breed contentment. What do y'all think?
I'm trying to explore some of these traits and get in the habit of doing things in our home that foster better stewardship of our resources.

I love this quote.
Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without. - Boyd K. Packer
It's not my nature. My nature is throw it away, we'll buy another one...a bigger and better one! That may be fun in the moment, but it is much more satisfying to use what we have.
