Waste Not, Want Not: Toast
Don't throw away food!
I usually eat less than a whole piece of toast for breakfast. But I never throw away the leftover bit!! I put it back into the bread bag and re-toast it the next day. It's still delicious.
If, for some unlikely, tragic reason, it is no longer delicious, I still don't thow it away! I put it outside for the birds; then I plop Beaubeau by the window to watch the show!! Beaubeau loves watching birds!
A lesser Cheapskate might throw away this quarter piece of bread, thus wasting a quarter loaf of bread, thus wasting a quarter the cost of the loaf of bread, this wasting 50 cents (depending on the cost of the loaf of bread).
50 Cents per loaf x 26 loaves per year
TOTAL SAVINGS: $13 (or more!!!)
Sometimes I eat only half a piece of toast, increasing my savings ever more!!!
