Frugal Homemade Béchamel Sauce

I really think that everybody has some simple recipes that are identifying their family meals. This Frugal Homemade Béchamel Sauce is one of these for us.
Frugal Italian Family's recipe

Yes, I know that it does not include all the ingredients of the traditional recipe, but we find our version lighter and more frugal and we absolutely love it.

This white sauce is perfect if you want to cook lasagne or any type of baked pasta (with vegetables or with cheese, for example). I'm sure that you will appreciate its delicate and simple taste.

Can reading magazines be a frugal activity?

I used to buy magazines a lot of years ago, not so many, but I liked to occasionally read something about cooking, home improvement or travel ( and yes, it was before having the possibility to read almost everything online ). 

When we embraced a more frugal lifestyle, we gave up buying magazines as we did not consider it a need and we thought that we always had the possibility to look for new ideas online.

However, I have to confess that sometimes I am missing the pleasure of flipping through a magazine.
