I finished eating my amazing Chic-fil-A nuggets, ate the last waffle fry, and snagged a few grapes from Aiden's fruit cup. Then I packed up the napkins in my purse (Hey! I'm frugal, yo. What are you gonna do 'bout it!?) and crinkled up the bag to throw away when I noticed it... the last lone Chic-fil-A sauce.
I didn't want to throw it away but I could I keep it? What would I use it for? My chicken nuggets couldn't touch the Chic-fil-A nuggets. Would it make a good chip dip? Ew. Gross.
Back to my original train of thought...
Whoa. How many sauce packets did I throw away each year? Between the ketchup packets, salt & pepper pouches, Chic-fil-A sauce, Arby's sauce, "I'm a clever saying." Taco Bell packet, etc etc ETC!? I was suddenly ashamed of myself in a whole new way.
Then I decided.
I'm going to become one of those frugal gals that has a drawer in her refrigerator dedicated to sauce packets!
WHOA! HOLD UP. GET OFF THAT TRAIN YOUNG LADY!
Hmmm... we don't eat out that much and I don't make anything that would really ever put the collection to use. Also, I try not to take more than I'll absolutely use each time I order out. So I need another reason to keep them.
AHA! Research! Thus forming this counter. I'm going to collect every sauce packet that gets sent home with me beyond my control for the next year. I'm curious to see!
Keep in touch if you want! The photo on the right is a direct link to this post I'll just keep updated over the next few (12) months!
