In the October 19, 2015 issue of First For Women Magazine , I found two unique ways of saving money. C'mon, take a peek with me!
On page 90, it is stated that if you love something in a store, check their website before buying---you may find better prices. Often the website has more stock to move than a store, so they are more apt to mark things down. For example, one woman saw a dressed she loved at Banana Republic for $98.00 but was able to get online for $17.00. She also found $80.00 Nine West shoes for $19.00 online!
Next, all of the take-out and delivery pizza dinners add up! On page 63, there is a Two-Cheese Margherita Pizza recipe (aka: white pizza) that will save your wallet. The recipe follows:
1 frozen pizza crust
1 Tbs. garlic olive oil
1 cup shredded fontina cheese
170 grams sliced fresh mozzarella cheese
3 sliced ripe tomatoes
1 clove garlic
3 Tbs. fresh basil leaves
Heat oven to 191 degrees C.
Place pizza crust on greased baking sheet.
Brush with half the garlic olive oil.
Sprinkle shredded fontina cheese evenly over crust.
Top with mozzarella and tomato slices.
Sprinkle evenly with minced garlic.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Drizzle with remaining garlic olive oil.
Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
Sprinkle with basil leaves before serving.
In closing, this issue taught 2 lessons: do not spend a fortune on clothes or pizza when you don't have to!
