Lifestyles Of The Fabulessly Frugal…
It’s no secret I love to entertain… but I think there’s a lot of people out there who are put off by entertaining because they think they need to spend a lot of money to have a good time. It’s sooo not true. I recently had a gathering of 15 woman over at my house for a committee meeting and asked each person to bring an appetizer or dessert to share. I provided the plates, glasses and beverages. Not only did we have a great time… but there was plenty of food. Wanna know what I served? Iced Tea and Strawberry Lemonade. Wanna know how much it cost me? Less than 2 dollars!
Last summer I was able to pick up a bunch of frozen lemonade concentrate for free. I also purchased a bunch of farm fresh strawberries which I sliced and placed in reusable containers and tossed in the freezer to use throughout the year. All I did was combine 2 cans of lemonade, 1 box of frozen berries…added water… packed my 2 gallon beverage canister with ice… and I was ready to go. And for the iced tea? I simply brewed a couple tea bags, added a few snippets of mint (from my garden) poured ice over the top… and I had more than enough drinks to go around.
I just goes to show… you don’t have to spend bookoo bucks to live the FABulessly FruGAL life. 🙂
