    Okay...this is something that has crossed my mind before, but I've never taken the time to actually try and figure out how much it likely costs us, in time, money, space, not to mention the additional waste to our landfill. I just inventoried the "pen drawer" in our bedroom. We had 14...

    this frugal lifestyle. I don't like meat with bones in it, so I only buy boneless chicken breasts and thighs. When I trim it for cooking, I sometimes I have to cut off fat. So, can I save this fat and little bits of chicken in the freezer and eventually make a chicken stock from it?? Even...
