Fun and frugal times...

So my motto for July will be fun and frugal... Frugal by using up, and making do... Fun by doing things I love, that will cost me very little.

Here's how I started out the month of July; Last night I was invited on a boat ride to watch the fire works on the water. ( If you ever have a chance to see fireworks from a boat do it! It's amazing!). I made a sangria to take, using a bottle of strawberry wine that was a gift, vodka that's been in my fridge since last June, a container of strawberry/kiwi juice ( 79 cents), a sliced lime (75 cents) and 1/2 a quart of strawberries ( 2.00), plus some 7 up ( 50 cents). It was very good...

Today I've been invited to a washer toss tournament, I just have to bring food as admission, and I have pork marinading in the fridge, and I can make a dessert to go too! I haven't made up my mind about going, but just knowing that I can is exciting enough...

I'll keep you updated on the fun things I've found to do this month!

I'm on a mission to use up my pantry this month. I was talking to a friend and she had Chicken Helper that was 5 years old. We moved in November so we cleaned out our pantry then but it doesn't hurt to do it again. Good luck! Have fun watching the fireworks from the boat!
