Frugal Living--Make it yourself!
Since starting to live a frugal lifestyle, I am always on the lookout for a deal, a good bargain, something I just can't pass up. Last week I came across just that.
I found 2 loaves of day old french bread marked down to 90 cents! We really like garlic bread with dinners like spaghetti, lasagna, or with grilled chicken salad. At the grocery store a loaf of garlic bread is around $2.00 here. I saw this bread and thought "hey I can make my own garlic bread!" So I did!! I just cut each loaf in half and sliced through the middle. I buttered it and then added garlic salt and some parsley. Closed the half loaf back up and placed it in the freezer. For less than $2 I have garlic bread for 4 meals! We had some this weekend, and my husband LOVED it! He wanted to know what kind it was because it so much better than any other's I've gotten! When I told him I made it myself, he told me to keep doing that! The kids liked it too. It is actually much softer than store bought~which we all liked! It makes me so happy to know that I can save money while still making my family happy!
Have a great day!
