Never throw out your leftovers as you just might be hungry someday and your refrigerator or freezer may be empty. By preparing soups with your leftover ham and ham bone you are making meals for the future.
Ham is a versatile meat and can be paired with all vegetables and even other meats like chicken for a chicken cordon blue. Being frugal is making the most out of huge family meals so there is no waste.
You can even bring your leftovers to your workplace and share if you want. It is much better to share with others who may be single and did not have a large family dinner than to throw perfectly good food in the trash.
Food for Thought
Being frugal is thinking of the future, saving money and always helping others.
