I have told you numerous times how I am trying to live more frugally.
I have been buying my kitchen staples in bulk.
This helps in many ways.
I can buy my staples when they are on sale and save money.
And I never find myself in the predicament of being out of something when I am in the middle of a recipe.
I have been pretty darn proud of myself.
I have large glass containers of flour, sugar, rice, pasta, beans, salt, and various spices lining my counter-tops.
I love the fact that the old jars I use make my kitchen kinda look like an old fashioned general store.
Today I realized a MAJOR flaw in my plan.
I was making the kids a pitcher of fruit punch.
They were thrilled to have a sugary sweet, brightly colored beverage to gulp.
I used ice cold water, measured the heaping cup of sugar and stirred it until it was all dissolved.
I filled up the Little-Foreman-in-Pink;s cup with the fake juice beverage.
She excitedly took a big swig...
"Eeeeeeeuuuuuwh!!" she yelled and made a terrible face.
Oh good grief! I was getting pretty agitated.... I was being a good mom and making them this totally unhealthy treat and she was gonna complain?!?!?
I told her to drink it and be quiet.
She tried it again.
and started to cry....
Bulk Storage Tip #13.
Always label your jars... even if you think you know whats in them....
Salt looks an awful lot like sugar when it's in a big glass jar!
