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.

Went to Survival Center today...

in Amherst,Mass.  Ate a free healthy lunch,got some free food from the pantry and some toiletries. Included in the mix was rganic,fresh,local produce soap from the Middle East,Tom's of maine tooth paste,Colombian coffee beans(have a grinder) and castile soap which is terrific stuff. Extol it's virtues further on my  blog. On way home saw some sunflowers on side of road growing wild. Picked one and then was yelled at by the man who guess owned the land saying  was on 'private property'. Some lady from the farm stand across the road ran over for payment. My friend gave her $2. Acted like was stealing a car load instead of innocently picking a wild flower. geez.
