7am Tuesday morning. Standing at the stove I was transforming leftover chicken from Monday's dinner into a breakfast of salsa style eggs. Scramble a few eggs, add some chopped chicken. Top with salsa, mild for me, spicy for my husband. As I opened the utensil drawer I grabbed a spoon and my internal frugal voice said "ah, use a fork instead because you can put that on the plate to eat the eggs, a spoon will mean an extra thing to wash". Down went the spoon, out came the fork.
And there is a glimpse inside a frugal mind. Efficiency is never far from my radar. Without it, frugality would be a challenge.
