In an effort to save money

August 10th, 2012 at 06:44 am

I made chicken fajitas two nights ago and I still have steamed veggies lefft over. Therefore this morning I went to the local grocery store and bought ground chicken, pasta noodles and sauce to make a big pot of beef and mac. (chicken is a healthier choice for me) My neighbor calls it lazy that i'm making a big pot to last more than one night. In my opinion I am doing what I have to do to cut out the urge of eating out. While I trim my debt I plan to trim at least 40lbs right along with it. Last night I also wrote out my budget for the month of August and if all goes well no mishaps i'll be able to pay down my orchard bank card. I'm so excited and actually looking forward to paying the bill now. Whereas in the past i'd pay the min and than get depressed when the new statement issued and the balanced didn't move.

    Lazy? Seriously? Making enough for more than one meal is an excellent practice.

    I hope your neighbor only said that in a teasing, good-humored way.

    What's wrong with being lazy, anyway? Wink

    Sounds like good planning to me! Who wants to cook more than they have to? Smile

    Smart, not lazy!

    Lazy? Focused. Not wasteful. Values time. Controls calories and portions. Uses refrigerator. (you are being billed for its power, might as well.)

    I could go on.

    Driving through the drive-thru every night is lazy. Cooking ahead is smart.

    I agree with the above, that isn't lazy. It is efficient and intelligent, and it leads to some insurance of better control over your eating and nutrition as well. Good for you!
