Spend less in September: Pancake revelation.

Ok, so this might not be a huge revelation in the sense of "a manifestation of divine will or truth" but it was certainly an eye-opener for me. I made a small batch of pancakes for DD and DH last night and realised there was no jam in the house. Rather than doing what I would normally do, i.e. put on my shoes and get some from the closest store, I asked, "hey is sugar ok since we have no jam?" and they said "sure". So, here is the revelation: we can do without.

You can make a simple syrup for pancakes with equal parts sugar and water - just boil it for 5 minutes or so. I usually add a cinnamon stick or something for flavor...but warm on pancakes, it is very good - and cheap!

Sounds like you are off to a great start. :)
