Another thought provoking moment for me

As those of you who check in frequently know, I've been pondering the depths of my frugalness lately. How big of a frugal person have I become? I think I have gone to new levels of frugalness this week.

At work yesterday my boss was making chicken and sausage gumbo. He cooked up the chicken legs and thighs and was de-boning them, but catch this . . . he was throwing away the bones! I couldn't believe it. I said something and he asked me if I wanted him to keep the bones for me. In my mind I was thinking of all the broth I could make and what a ginormous waste he was creating, so I said yes. I walked out of the restaurant with a bowl of bones, put them in the crock pot with some water overnight and woke up this morning to nice flavorful chicken broth!

Is that a new low or a new high?
