Oranges are a frugal and thrift conscious way to add vitamins
to your diet. Save money on oranges by purchasing good quality oranges and then
using them in a variety of ways. Avoid buying oranges in bags. You can't
get a good look at them or feel them individually. Oranges in bags can be
dried out and have mold growing on them. A fresh, juicy orange will be heavy
from the liquid in the orange. A dried out orange will be lighter.
some additional frugal tips to save money on
- Shop at a Farmer's market.
- Use your oranges in a variety
of ways. Eat them plain, use them in fruit salads, and use them to make orange juice. Never let an orange go to waste.
- Save the rind and freeze it to
use in baked goods.
When Christmas rolls around, you can
use oranges to decorate your home and give it a festive scent. Poke holes
and put cloves in the oranges, and place them in a bowl.
