One of the easiest ways to save money is to make your own rather than buying store bought food. Here are just a few ideas of foods that don’t take a lot of time to mix up and will save you money,
Amazing Overnight Waffles– This recipe can be mixed up the night before so it’s just about ready to go in the morning. These waffles can also be frozen and are tastier that any store version of frozen waffles.
Yogurt– I started making yogurt on a regular basis once I found out how easy it was. I usually make it plain but it’s easy enough to add fruit or vanilla to flavor it.
Bread– Use a mixer or a bread machine or your hands. By making your bread at home you know exactly what is in it. I make three loaves at a time, and put two in the freezer for later use.
Chicken Broth– Make your own with water, bones and the chicken carcass. Freeze or pressure can for use later.
Dog Biscuits– Don’t forget the dog! These simple biscuits only take minutes to mix up. Our dog loves them!
These are just a few ideas. You’d be surprised at how little time it really takes to make some of the simple items you usually purchase in the store. What do you make from scratch?
