In this article, I talked about the tools I find useful in my kitchen. Many of you have asked how can I say that owning all those appliances could possibly be “simple” or frugal. Good questions need good answers.
Being a died in the wool do-it-yourselfer who also likes simplicity, I have often hit the wall on one aspect or the other. Sometimes something that is frugal is definitely not simple, at least for some and at least at first.
One of my biggest irritations and yet the most pathetic dilemma is what do you do with socks? Socks present the most patient homemaker a potentially endless supply of frustration. I have yet to figure out how to do without socks and yet I hate the fact that they wear out quickly and unevenly (I know, I need to "chill").
