If it comes in a box, a jar, a bottle or a freezer pack, you can probably make it at home for cheaper.
Since January 1, I’ve spent less money on groceries by shopping only on the outside of the store aisles and using the little hand held cart.
I’ve also tried to make my own dressing, sauces, soupes and mixes. The money I saved, I used to buy better quality ingredients so I find myself a few months in with a better stocked pantry and better food for less money. Spending wisely sometimes means you can get quality and quantity too.
