Something on another post bears discussion. Sometimes ot is best to cost out the things that you are making from scratch. Not always is homemade cheaper. Better sometimes, but not necessarily cheaper. I have not cost bread flour. I. Guessing that homemade artisan bread is cheaper. Since it is on sale for almost four dollars and the whole bag of flour costs something like six. Brownies, on the other hand,mat the cost of cocoa, are cheaper on sale for 1.00 a box mix. Bakery is not cheaper. Usually convenience starts with $$$$$.!
Sirloin tips with a coupin are cheaper than homemade and are a good go to when you are in a hurry.
Certainly always cheaper than going out. The family went out one day this week. I stayed home not knowing what my new meds would bring me. They brought me home a chicken Cesar salad. It fit into a shallow six inch bowl. I couldn't find the parm. It had a slathering of dry bread cubes and the dregs of some pieces of chicken. EIGHT dollars! I could have bought a whole five pound chicken and a head of lettuce for that!
Meat still seems to be the stumbling block for a thrifty budget these days. Everything except chicken seems to be about double what it was two years ago. They are sure playing that drought card a long time! Pork tenderloin was always two dollars.
On another note,mi did our imcome tax. We had to draw out of retirement accounts to make it last year. I thought we were going to have to pay a lot of tax! I dug up every deduction that was legal on the schedule A. To my surprise, we have a very little tax bill. It probably was because my entire ssa check amd them some went to medical last year! And I thought I was economizing in food for the fun of it! LOL
Happy shopping . Today is the day I need to clean the fridge and make good use of anything that needs to be eaten.
Thanks for stopping by
