Efficiency at the Core of Frugality

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.
