Welcome to the 213th Edition of the Festival of Frugality. The Festival is a weekly listing of frugal posts from around the internet. For more information about hosting or submitting a post, see the website.
Thank you for visiting CookingManager.Com. I share tips and recipes for home chefs who want to save time and money in the kitchen, using fresh ingredients and cooking from scratch. I especially like to save on water, gas and electricity so be sure to check out my series on appliances. I post recipes every Wednesday. You can get new posts by email or RSS reader, or join my Facebook fan page.
