I decided to start giving a few tips on being frugal.
Over the years, I have really learned to stretch a dollar.
Food and frugality doesn't always involve the use of coupons.
That is really what most people seem to think of first.
Really, I don't use a lot of coupons.
It is hard for me to find them for either the brands or types of foods I buy.
One of the biggest money savers is cooking from scratch.
At first, it may seem like it costs more to buy all the individual ingredients.
But, you will have left over ingredients for other meals or baked goods.
If you work full-time, it can be hard.
It is still doable.
Use your crockpot.
Do some of your prep work before work that morning or the night before. Refrigerate if needed.
Set aside a day every few weeks and make meals ahead and stick them in the freezer. Thaw the night before and heat up when you get home.
Every Friday, I plan to give you tips on saving money.
It can be easier than you think.
