I cannot stress how being frugal is wise. For example, driving through a fast food restaurant to grab an egg sandwich and a cup of coffee is an expense that is not needed. Do you have a microwave, two pieces of toast, some lunch meat, egg and cheese? Make it yourself! (oh yeah, brew your own coffee too and fill up a travel mug or thermos)
All this takes is about two (2) minutes to microwave. His microwave only took one (1) minute to cook an egg where my microwave takes (2) minutes.
Personally, I do not like ham. If you do not like ham either or simply have a different type of lunch meat in the fridge, simply improvise. The same with cheese.
I would like to use salami and a piece of mozzarella with toast and egg for my egg sandwich. However, my version would not be frugal. If I would personally need to be frugal, around here, the cheapest ham to buy is honey ham and American cheese is the cheapest cheese.
I hope you have found this video to inspire you to be frugal and your craving for an Egg McMuffin satisfied!
