Oh how I love tacos. You not what’s almost as good as homemade Tacos….Dorito Tacos from Taco Bell.

If only I could buy Dorito Taco Taco Shells I would be a very happy camper.

Let me explain something to you, I am a very frugal (or in my mom’s words I’m cheap) but I don’t like to waste money on things that I can make for much much cheaper. I honestly don’t even know what a packet of taco seasoning mix cost anymore but I’m going to guess around $1.25. Other things that I don’t waste my money on paper plates, napkins, paper towels (I have them but I use them very very sparingly) and plastic silverware; I literally see it as just throwing my money right into the trash (not judging if you use those items). And yes, I will probably be one of those people that uses cloth diapers.

Anyways, back to tacos.
