I luv homemade bread. Yummy. On making the bread web-site they had a picture of a Kitchen Aid mixer. Do you have one? Is it necessary for homemade bread? I was wondering if I should invest in one?

I don't have a bread machine. I make it by hand. It does take some time though where you walk away and let it rise, so I tend to do it on Saturdays.

There are some good directions for handmade bread with pictures here:

We had a bread machine in my house growing up and it works just as well and perhaps saves you some time as you can fully walk away for several hours and come back with fresh bread. But I don't have the counter space or the money for one right now.

I have no idea how long it stay fresh as it never makes it more than a week in our house. But we just put it in one of those large freezer ziplock bags and put it in the pantry.

Do you use a bread machine, or just make it the old fashioned way? I've been wanting to make my own bread, but I don't have a bread machine. Not sure how hard it is or how long it stays fresh once you bake it. How do you store it once it's baked?

Bake your own bread! It's really easy.

Use the sales flyers.

Meal plan and make a list.

Stick to your list!

I am a coupon fan. It works for us. Though tends to save us more money on non-food items, like dog food and toiletries.

What else? There has to be more ideas out there.
