Quick Healthy Lunches

One thing I've been doing for ages, but more regularly now, is make lots of sandwiches at once and then freeze them for easy grab and go lunches.  When I was a school teacher this was critical for those days when I didn't have a lot of time in the morning.  Now that I'm taking care of my husband, I like to have all the components of a quick and healthy lunch ready so that he or I can throw it together before he heads out the door.  I used to do this when my loaf of bread was getting old.  Now I make my own bread and keep loaves in the freezer since, let's face it, the 50 pound tubs of whole wheat are a super cheap food storage and what good is the food storage if it's not used? So every Tuesday I check the supply of frozen sandwiches, carrot sticks, apples, and if he's lucky, frozen blobs of cookie dough.  If I'm out, I make more or put the item on my shopping list.  I also check my supply of bread and if I'm out I make more - usually I only have to d

Welcome Sarah! A new Tight Wad Contributor!

I am so excited that my friend Sarah has agreed to join Tight Wad!  She is thrifty to the BONE and I have so much to learn from her!  Plus.. she makes me laugh :)   You can look forward to future posts that will help us all save money and time.   Thank you Sarah!! --I love the "eye" Being frugal may be the biggest thing my husband and I have in common.  For how much we enjoy saving money, it may come as a surprise that even though we don't have children I'm not employed.  When we got married I quit my job as a teacher to stay home and take care of our "family."  I think one of the best ways to save money is to make it a full time vocation.  This way I can give all my focus to planning and conserving and maximizing our family's resources.  I'm enjoying the challenge. Being frugal, though, is not new to me. I remember one time at work when people were talking about how much they spent on hair cuts.  I was still making my Dad do it.  I
