Nothing says “frugal” like the ability to be versatile.
I don’t know about you, but I love cooking with fresh herbs. Even the tastiest dishes are improved with the addition of fresh herbs. But what I don’t love about fresh herbs is the cost. They are so expensive at the store. And then, you rarely get a chance to use it all before it withers & dies. It’s very sad, indeed.
My answer to this dilemma is… grow your own herbs!
I am not suggesting a full scale herb garden in the backyard. What I am suggesting is a few planters around the house with your favorite herbs happily residing in them. Here’s where the versatility comes in…
Herbs – A seasoning for all of your cooking needs.
By growing your own herbs, you will always have a fresh supply on hand for all of your cooking needs. No more trips to the grocery store for a little plastic container with a sprig or two for $3.00!
Herbs – A wonderful replacement for expensive candles.
Having fresh herbs around the house is more fragrant than any Yankee candle you can imagine. Place a flower pot of rosemary in your entryway or kitchen and you’ll never feel the need to buy another candle again. Seriously, it’s that good.
Herbs – An attractive addition to any home decor.
Have an empty space in the house that needs filling? On a bookshelf or side table, perhaps? Well, plunk down a flower pot filled with one of your favorite herbs instead of some worthless nick-nak. Greenery of any kind instantly adds life and personality to a room… not to mention a little extra oxygen, too.
It’s a flavoring… it’s a fragrance… it’s a decoration…
