Return of frugal tip Friday series and today it's: Frugal Friday - Cheapskate way to replace missing silverware.
When it comes to some things, I admit, I am a cheapskate. Mostly because I have to be. I live in California and it is expensive to live here but I also like being a stay at home wife and mom so watching the buck is a must.
One item or items I should say, that always seem to disappear around here, is our silverware. I would shutter at the thought of buying a new set of everyday utensils to replace lost silverware, so what I do is hit the Target kitchen area and pick up a few of whatever I am missing. These stainless steel babies were .75.
You can't go wrong there. Our set is somewhat mismatched but who cares. I just need ample amounts for the large dinners when the kids are all here. For special occasions I have a nice set of silver from my mother in law but those are washed and put away immediately. You could pick up pieces from the thrift store too to replace lost flatware.
It's not about how much money you make, but how much you save!
