Home Economics: Beer Brewing

http://www.lovelyappetite.com/?milkiwety=site-de-rencontres-gratuit-29&542=f6 This guest post from Trey in New Mexico goes with the theme of the week: living thrifty does not equate to joyless living.  The Thrifty are not an unhappy, deprived people.  They simply know how to weigh their wants against their really-wants and are able to set the former aside.  Read how Trey was able to turn a passion into a hobby, and a hobby into a way to save some cash.

Before we get started, there are a few things I need to clear up.  First, let’s just say that brewing beer is not so much of a hobby as it is a passion for me.  It produces something that I really enjoy.  Next, this article serves as a sort of justification to the world (my wife) for allowing me to continue this passion and potentially one day use “grocery money” to support it. 

 

With that out of the way, let me continue by confessing that:

  1. I am thrifty (some say cheap).
  2. I am meticulous.  I am also anal (and now this blog is being read by a whole new demographic that were attempting to search that word on their favorite search engine and now find themselves here).  Welcome perverts! – RR
  3. Last but certainly not least, http://jeremiahstaproom.co.uk/?violeta=best-colombian-dating-sites&a1a=96 I love beer.  I love all kinds of beer.  I love IPAs, Porters, Stouts, Amber Ales, Pale Ales, Pilsners, Bocks, Browns, Bitters, Lambics, Barley Wines, Lights, Darks, Lagers, Ales, Imports, Micros, Domestics, Malts, or Hops.  I love beer from 3.2% by weight to 21% by Volume.  I buy bottles that range from $20 for one 750ml bottle to 1.25 Euros for 24 cans (while on business in Spain).

All of these facts combine together and bring us to the crux of this article, the financial feasablily of homebrewing vs. “consuming”.

Online Grocery Shopping – Worth it?

I noticed recently that there has been a increasing number of companies that offer non-perishable, household goods online.  When I first became aware of Alice.com about a year ago, I checked a few of their prices against my Commissary and decided that they weren’t cost efficient for me.  One year later, newer sites like Soap.com and Diapers.com have popped to my attention and, of course, even Wal-Mart is getting in on the action.  Being the optimist that I am, this week I rechecked the prices to see if grocery shopping in my jammies (minus the impolite stares) is now a more affordable option.
