Today we are going to talk about one of favourite foods. Raw honey.
I love the stuff because it is so good for you body AND it has tons of uses AND when one product has about 15 different uses it makes it one frugal, budget friendly item on your shopping list.
Raw honey is more expensive than normal blended honey, but for the amount of things I can use it for I see it as a bargain as I don’t have to buy other things like face wash/mask, shampoo, sugar, chocolate, cough syrups etc.
(I buy in bulk – see below).
