Just because we’re at home doesn’t mean we can’t still be frugal foodies.
Today, we’ll look at how you can jumpstart a garden and start making craft brews at home!
Frugal foodie is back! If you’re new to this series, it’s where we explore ways you can eat well without breaking the budget.
For some though, when you hear frugal. It means cheap. I get it. Maybe, you know, someone who brags about getting the absolute lowest price on everything. Whether it’s good or bad.
While you can save money being frugal, the real focus is getting the best value.
When it comes to food and really life, he don’t want to settle for less just because it’s the cheapest. You want to get the most out of what you have.
With this series, we look at ways that you can make your dollar go further. We’ve talked about getting great deals on food, whether it’s grocery hacks, meal planning, or even going out to eat.
Today, we’re going to look at another way you can enjoy fantastic meals and still keep things affordable.
We’re talking about gardening and home brewing.
What was interesting was how incredibly relaxing these hobbies, where especially last year.
Many of us had more time at home in the usual options weren’t always available. Family trips, checking out the museums or festivals were all off the table. We had to find ways to keep ourselves busy and have some creative outlets.
For us that included making home brews and being out in the garden.
We had home brewed years ago, but when we had two toddlers at home, it became more of a hassle so we took a hiatus.
Thankfully, we still had the equipment in our basement so when we felt like starting that back up last year, it was fairly simple.
The other hobby gardening is something we’ve been working on year after year, especially with this house. We have our main space Outback, where we grow hot peppers, tomatoes, different green strawberries and more.
2020 was still. You know, 20, 20, but it was good to have a project to work on. While, I don’t think all of our Happy’s have to be productive or optimize, I do feel like there are some great benefits. With making and growing your own food.
If you’re really looking to make meals at home, more enjoyable and special, it’s hard to beat something that you grew or made yourself.
Today, we’re going to look at what it takes to get started so the two of you can level up and become frugal foodies.
