I’m a bit of a foodie, so I love to splurge on really good ingredients when I’m cooking any kind of a special meal. We got a pastured organic turkey for Thanksgiving from a local farm. It was ridiculously expensive, but boy was that a good turkey (and a great meal)! I save money by buying much of the kids’ clothes and toys used. We’ve got great consignment stores here, and since my kids are at an age where they grow out of their clothes and get tired of their toys almost instantly, there’s no reason to buy new.
