3.0 COOKING, FOOD AND HOME PRODUCTS - EXAMPLES OF DO-IT-YOURSELF SAVINGS - DIY

  1. Make more recipes from scratch.
  2. Learn to cook beans and grains.

Beans cooked in a slow cooker are easy, healthy, filling and inexpensive. Beans and grains are good basic dishes that can be livened up easily by adding other ingredients. My wife makes herself oatmeal with the old fashioned (not instant) oats and saves about $100 a year over breakfast cereal.

  1. Make your own brown bag lunch.

Is it just a coincidence that some of the richest people in the world, such a Getty, always brought lunch to work? Make five sandwiches on Sunday and put them in the freezer. Each workday pull one out and take it with you. The sandwich will keep because it is frozen, but it will thaw by lunch time, just in time for your meal. In a year's time you will save a small fortune (anywhere from $1000-$3000).

  1. Make you own convenience food such as ready to use mixes that you store in the frige.
  2. Make bread with a bread machine.

If you have already prepared your own custom mix, this is very easy.
