People have many different motivations for gardening. For some it is a pleasurable hobby to help relieve the stresses of daily life. Some people are trying to get away from the preservatives and other chemicals contained in processed foods purchased at the grocery store. One often overlooked reason for gardening, however, is for the simple fact of saving money.
Growing your own fruits and vegetables can really put a dent in your monthly grocery bill. What often starts out as a hobby can quickly become a way of life when you realize just how much money you are saving every month. Here are several ways that you can save money by making the most of your garden harvest.
Freezing is one of the most popular methods for preserving fruits and vegetables. You do not need a lot of special equipment that is necessary for canning.
Just about anything you grow can be frozen. Some vegetables need to be blanched first (boiled for a minute or two) before frozen, so look up directions for freezing that particular fruit or vegetable. Some produce, like cherry tomatoes, can be frozen whole.
You can place items to be frozen in reclosable freezer bags, or you can purchase a vacuum sealer that will remove the air from the package before you freeze it, significantly extending the item’s storage life.
Freezing is very easy and only requires a little extra freezer space.
I have come to realize that I cannot lose my weight without going to Weight Watchers meetings. I hear people say all the time, “I don’t need to go to the meetings. I can do it on my own”! Well, I used to say the same thing. That is why I put back on 50 of my 80 pounds lost. Because I can’t do it on my own.
There is something about going to the meetings that helps me to stay on track. I don’t know if it’s because I feel that I have to weigh in and I don’t want them to think,”oh, another 2 or 3 pounds up”. Whatever the reason, it helps!
So, last week, I returned once again. My original starting weight was 284. You can follow along with my weekly weigh in’s. Yeah, I’m laying it on the line. Don’t laugh, I know I weigh a lot. It’s not easy, especially when I’m on my steroids. I just want to eat all the time. My husband says to me ~ “I can’t believe you tell everyone how much you weight”! I know, I can’t either, but there it is in black and white.
