I can get 12 english muffins for $5.00 at Sam's club, so it works out pretty economical. Considering a large pizza's can be $15.00. We lived in England for over twenty years, dealt with the cost of food there, no fun. Ten years ago was paying $2.00 per cup of coffee, know it''s higher now. Perhaps in your case, making the dough yourself is the most economical. I've done that also.

Welcome, LOONEE!

YORKSHIRELASS8, I would like to know how you make your yogurt. Have you tried different methods? Which one do you like best?

Hi Kate,
I'm an older Mom now, so it's more about the grandkids, 5 mnths,3 and 5 years. I have had to over the course of my life to stick a budget. I find that with today's high food cost i'm back really watching the grocery bill. I plan meals around what's on sale and what's in season. I buy things on sale and for example we eat ground turkey and when it's on sale I buy extra, i make chili, burgers, meat loaf with that. I try not to waste food. I do a lot of stir frys cause they are healthy and it takes very little meat. I use lots of spices and herbs to add flavour and make extra of most things. I make my own granola and yogurt. I use dry beans. It does take time and planning but it'll pay off in the long run, better health and lower food bills. Stay away from packaged items. whole grain english muffins make great little pizza. a little ground turkey, tomato sauce and a little grated cheese,(do it yourself). Let me know if I can help with anything particular.
