It has been way, way too long1 since I’ve discovered a crazy frugal tip even remotely worth sharing.
But today in the check-out queue at Coles Leichhardt (I know. On the rare occasion I shop there I come away feeling so dirty) while Don was loading the conveyor (he has a system with which I do not mess), I was compelled to pick up one of those horrifically bogan magazines with a teensy “save money” supplement wrapped around it.
And, dear reader, amongst the yawn-inducing tips we’ve all seen so many times before, I struck frugal gold.
Keep tomato sauce sachets from cafes in the freezer. They make great cold packs for kids’ injuries and are cheaper than buying fancy ones from the chemist.
