Frugal Friday: Last bit of jam...

So it's a good thing my children don't read my blog, because I've been getting away with something for a while now, and I really don't want them to know about it!

When I buy jam, I only buy the "all fruit" varieties, so it is a bit more pricey than regular jam. When the jar is almost empty, I add some plain or vanilla yogurt and a bit of milk. Then I cap the jar and give it a good shake. This mix goes into popsicle molds and Presto! My kids think I've slaved bigtime!

You could also throw the mixture into a smoothie concoction. At any rate, check out the other great frugal tips!


Sounds like you've read The Tightwad Gazette books. I'd forgotten about this tip, but I'll have to remember it next time I finish up a jar of jam.
