I've gone back to really examining if my life energy is worth the price of things.

For instance we eat a lot of beans. Obviously opening a can vs. Buying dried is easier, but how hard is it to simmer beans? 5 cans of beans are five times more expensive than reconstituting, even with organic ones. The small amount of time is worth it plus it eliminates a lot of sodium .

Looking for stuff used or making do you might find as opposed to going to the store to buy new is most certainly worth it to me.
