Now that the weather is cold (and rainy in Oregon), it’s the perfect time to save money with a soup night. I like to schedule a soup night once a week, because it’s a great way to use up leftovers that might otherwise go bad in the back recesses of the refrigerator.
I keep a 2 cup container in the freezer, where I keep leftover veggies. When the container is full, I know it’s time to make a big pot of soup.
To make a frugal soup from leftovers:
At dinnertime add some bread (I like homemade) and maybe a salad, and you have an easy, frugal meal. And your leftovers won’t be wasted.
Do you have a practical frugal idea?
