Time Saving Tips

We all went to a crawfish boil yesterday. It was benefitting the LSU alumni associations’ scholarship fund. My husband went to LSU, I did not. We couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather either. It was around 87 and breezy. I loved it. The crawfish were delicious and the kids had a great time. They all fell asleep in the car on the way home and we were pretty tired too.

I made a few new friends who want to have a girl’s night out. While I was there I was talking to a friend who uses coupons and follows my blog. I think I will be able to show her a few things once we can get together.

After all the crawfish were gone, there were still sacks of potatoes and corn leftover. As both my husband and I are frugal, we asked the people in charge what are they going to do with those leftover sacks. They said they were probably going to throw it away. My husband and I can’t stand to throw food away, so we grabbed a big sack of potatoes and a big sack of corn to take home with us. Today we put it all up. We cut the corn off the cob and cut the potatoes into quarters.

We ended up with 30 pounds of potatoes and 15 pounds of corn. So 45 pounds of food for the cost of the crawfish boil. Now that is Pounds 4 Pennies!
