Cook To Have Leftovers

Apr 26, 2021

I recently released a free download how I became accidentally frugal, in a modern world. I list up to 50 ways I discovered this common sense approach from 2020.

In 2019 my word was SIMPLIFY.
We did just that!

2020 I didn’t have a word… actually I did — it was the ef one. I said it a lot.🤣🤷🏻‍♀️

Anyways, On a serious note… I learned a lot during 2020!

Being frugal in a modern world is not about being cheap. It’s about setting boundaries, adjusting your priorities and controlling your mindset.

We all have different wants/needs/priorities in life.

That’s just the way it is.

One of the ways we are frugal is how we grocery shop/eat. That doesn’t mean we eat cheap. That means we eat smart when/where we can so we can splurge later. It’s spending wisely according to your lifestyle/interest.

Makes sense?

I’ve leaned to save/earn in particular areas so I can spend wisely or splurge in other areas.

And when I say wisely… those are things that are on my priority list.
Not my friend’s priority list or my family’s priority list. MINE/Austin.

Things like this simple meal go a long ways. We try to cook to have leftovers.

What’s here:

-Pork – wherever it’s priced good
-Rice – we have both white and yellow and it lasts us a LONG time
-Black Beans – 1 cup dried black beans in Instant Pot (dried beans last forever, too)
-Pico – leftover veggies

I do this same common sense approach with clothes, kitchen items, how we pay for things, earning credits/referrals/extra income, personal interest, health or beauty products—

So after a busy Monday, thank goodness for leftovers!

Burritos are another every week leftover.

What are some of your favorite leftover recipes???
