Save money, eat expired food...

'be frugal'.

not necessarily bad  Food pantries often freeze meat so says like March but still good as was frozen.  They hand out stale bread and bruised fruit, veggies too, donated from grocery stores locally. Can still work though. Great for soups and juicing. Read more here.

Save money by taking care of what own aready like...

your clothing.  Be careful of stains and if get one promptly launder to preserve the item. Promptly repair car if needs maintenance. Package food properly so doesn't spoil. Use food before expiration dates. Take care of health too as much as possible by eating right,exercising,going for regular check ups to prevent major illness and expensive doctor bills. Take care of pets too for same reasons.

All YOu Can EAt Italian Buffet At Village Pizza for $ 4.99..


"A cynic knows the COST of everything and the VALUE of NOTHING!"

I ate chicken,eggplant,pasta,freshly made cheese pizza,salad and a chocolate brownie. I felt stuffed when I finished and it tasted YUM, yum,Good! Great bang for your buck. Especially when other pizza parlor Franks's charges $ 6.99 for a limited portion, spaghetti and meatball dinner with bread and salad..Also they are alot nicer to deal with than Frank. I suggest you check Village pizza out if you want a great meal for your buck!

Went to Apple Fest in Cairo,NY..


It was nothing to write home about and many of the items were way overpriced so didn't buy any aple pies for $ 10. or the sausage and peppers sandwiches for $ 7.! Nuts..To top it off,later ifn the day they were asking $ 2. to get in..I bought some books to support the library at a great price. They were $ 1 a book and the large books for a coffee table were $ 3. i bought a pair of opalite earrings from a vendor and some apple cidar donuts for $ 1. and ate som chili for $3 with a piece of tastey corn bread to stay warm. Later I went back and tried some dry pulled pork on an unappeizing hot dog oll for $2. Thy had live entertainment such as a 50's band named 'Dusk ot Dawn'. Gus is why they were asking money to get in to cover the cost of the band. I can hear it fromm my home as i live right near the park so i didn't pay anything. It was cold out so didn't stay long.Today i will have my yeard sale to hopefully get rid of some stuff to lighten my load to move and make some moving money.
