Tuesday's Tips

Good evening everyone! Today's tips are going to center around being resourceful and creative. We just threw a party at my house for my little brother who is graduating and earning his undergraduate degree, and of course that left us with a lot of leftover food. This brings me to Tip #1...

1) Use leftovers to make creative meals. Many people get tired of leftovers because it's a taste they've already recently had, and they want something different. Well it can actually be easy to take leftovers and make really good new meals out of them. Let's say you grilled some chicken and now you have 2 chicken breasts sitting in your fridge. Just chop them up, add some mayo, relish, and almonds and you've got a delicious grilled chicken salad. Or maybe you made tacos, but ran out of shells. No worry, just make some mac'n'cheese and add the taco meat and you've got a really easy cheesy taco pasta dish. You'll be amazed at what you can make when you look at your pantry and refrigerator shelves to see what's been sitting there for a while not being used.

2) Use everyday household items to make cards instead of buying them. My brother did this for the Christmas cards he made everyone this past year. He found some construction paper, markers, stickers, and glue and made macaroni cards for everyone. It was absolutely hilarious to get a macaroni card from a 20 year old person, but he put a lot of time and effort into making them and everyone appreciated it. You can also put this everyday household items repurposing into other forms such as a birdfeeder from a milk jug, or any other creative use you can find for stuff you already own.

The real message I'm trying to get across is that you don't have to spend lots to be creative. You'll be amazed at how much you save and how much fun you can have doing it when you get your creative mojo working.

I'm on a 168 hour break, so until then Stay Tuned...
