How Low Can You Go Challenge: Day 1

Today was a good day for spending - we didn't go anywhere :)

I made some vege soup for lunch with a can of tomatoes, some stock & celery from the freezer, a couple of carrots and some herbs & spices. It proved quite adequate with a freshly baked baguette - I started back making bread a couple of weeks ago from the Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day book. I don't try to make all the bread we eat, but its nice every few days when I have the time to make a loaf fresh for lunch.

Dinner was crumbed fish from the freezer with home-made chips.

Thanks for everyone's good luck wishes!

What a great challange Kerrie! I'm sure you'll do great. Might have to follow your example when I get home after Easter.

That meal sounds delicious! I haven't made bread for a while, but keep thinking we should do it more than twice a year.

We've just set our financial goals for the next phase of our lives, so I'm reflecting on how frugal we already are and what we can still improve on. I think it's great that you and lots of other bloggers are sharing ideas and success stories about this too!
