Provident Living Tips

I’m compiling a list of Provident Living tips for leaders. These might be included in an Relief Society newsletter or used as part of a lesson for a RS meeting.

Cooking Providently

  • Don’t stack containers before freezing food. Put them in the freezer in one layer.
  • To speed thawing, made an indentation in the middle of the package of ground meat before you freeze it. (like a donut)
  • If you thaw food in the refrigerator, you can refreeze it safely. If you that food in cold water or in the microwave, you should cook it before you refreeze it.
  • Time Saver – Instead of thawing food before cooking, add 50 percent additional time to the original cooking time.

Offline Shopping

  • http://www.couponmom.com/ – One-stop coupon resource. This links to SmartSource, RedPlum, Upromise and other major grocery coupon sites.

Online Shopping

  • http://www.couponmom.com/ – One-stop coupon resource. This links to SmartSource, RedPlum, Upromise and other major grocery coupon sites.
  • http://google.com/ – type in the name of the store you’re shopping at online with the word “coupon” after it. You’ll find lots of coupons for thousands of online stores.
  • http://kayak.com/ – the best of the online travel comparison engines. Does not search Southwest Airlines, however. Excels at airfare.
  • http://www.vacationstogo.com/emailtick.cfm – best place I’ve found for last-minute (90-days or less) bargain cruises. Click on the “You Save” column for the best deals.

Eating Out

  • http://restaurant.com/ – discount gift certificates for restaurants in many cities. I use these when we go on vacation to control food costs.

These provident living tips can be reproduced in newsletters and other sources.
