Frugal Food Fridays

March 2, 2012

I am pleased to announce that this month the brilliant Fuss Free Flavours has invited me to host Frugal Food Fridays


This is particularly apt for me at the moment as I think it’s now safe to reveal the ” things afoot that I can’t tell you about until they happen” which I referred to.

Mr B and I are in the final stages of buying a house (hurrah!). It’s all very exciting and will result in a garden that I can hopefully grow things in,  a new (to me) and  bigger kitchen and a whole bunch of plastering, painting, drilling etc. It does however mean that we have to be rather more careful with our pigling-pennies this month.

S,o I shall be pleased to steal <er,herm> learn all your tips and hints from Frugal Food Friday

To take part, simply blog about any money saving idea that is vaguely food related. You can also include frugally styled food photos. If you want extra inspiration, how about coming up with the ideal but thrifty end of day feast for a moving house day? Or the first breakfast? Or ways to use up things you find when defrosting you freezer?

There are a few rules:

  • Please link to the Frugal Food Fridays page
  • Please link to the current host – me!
  • Please use the Frugal Food Fridays Badge
  • email me to tell me you have entered talesofpiglingbland AT gmail DOT com
  • Use #frugalfriday to tweet your entry if you use twitter and I will RT them

But feel free to:

  • Send to as many other events as you like, let’s help everyone save money!
  • Use historic recipes, but they must be republished and the logo and links above added please..
  • Blog any day of the week! Not just Fridays!
Closing date is March 30th (which incidentally is just after potential move-date, so I may be writing the round-up from the middle of a pile of boxes)

    My post is ready to go but I can’t see a linky anywhere. Is there just going to be a roundup at the end of the month or a linky during the month too?

      Brilliant. Sadly doesn’t support Linkys (unless you know of a way?) so I will be doing a full round up of all the entries at the start of April right here. Thanks so much for taking part x
