Sugar (and energy) cravings

I crave sugar the most in the afternoon. We don’t eat it so I usually reach for Raw Fit (a vegan protein shake that gives me a ton of energy from pea protein I think). It’s expensive though I lessened the cost by subscribing to it on Amazon. Adding 4 other items to the subscription bought the cost down another 15% (it was already priced a good deal less than what our local health foods stores were charging).

I started freezing bananas a few days so I bought a bunch of them at Costco yesterday. I didn’t know an entire bunch of bananas cost only $1.39! Try peeling one and freezing it whole. They taste exactly like a banana popsicle. It feeds that sugar craving that is making me crazy as I deal with fall allergies in a healthy and frugal way. This is definitely another example of a frugal choice being a better choice.

I have a small power up today with fuel coming in 3.91 under budget last Wednesday. I wrote before that I keep blogging about these small deposits as they make up the bulk of the $20k+ balance that’s in our Money Game fund. They keep make our fund fatter and fatter.
