Simple Ways to Slash Your Grocery Bill
"Saving Money Online - Healthy Deals" is a regular feature from the blogger, Heavenly Homemakers.
When she finds good deals online she sends out an email with the links.
It's like getting the best frugal deals on healthy stuff without having to look for it yourself - like having a personal shopper - just browse the latest email and see if there's anything you want or need in it.
This week's links of deals contain:

Bake Your Own Bread to Save Money
Most of us who come to Dave on our journey to freedom and leaving a legacy, did not start out frugal. Even 'Savers', may have WANTED to do things like be a better home economist, or WANTED to learn to make bread, but didn't grow up with those skills at home. I know I didn't.
Luckily for us, we're adults now and can make our own future and learn the frugal skills we need to learn, in order to Never Pay Retail again. Luckily for us, we're adults now who have access to the internet.
And with all the crap they put in store bought bread, you KNOW this is also good for your SparkJourney, as well.
Here's a blog from a person who actually knows what she is talking about when it comes to bread, and she because she is also a very good teacher it was a pleasure to read this very good, comprehensive, educational blog that answers most questions and overcomes most objections. Kind of a 1-stop-shopping place for bread 101. Also I know the Artisan method of which she speaks, is tried and true; you do not need to have any special skills or talent, and the dough conveniently stays in the fridge, ready for instant use.
Also notice Jessica is a Dave Fan . . . note the tag line in the header of her blog, "act your wage".

Dave recommended E-Mealz, menu planning service. If you're struggling with your grocery budget, if $75 or less a week would be an answer to prayer for you, if planning menus & grocery lists and finding recipes is not your gift, you might be interested in E-Mealz. Disclaimer: It is not for me, and, it is a service - not free. But it's very affordable; and if you struggle with overspending on groceries this would be one way . . .

Another great blogger I subscribe to. Not that I eat pancakes, but, many of you do, plus there's lots more than just pancakes.
Frugal Recipes: “Instant” Pancake Mix
If you make pancakes today, here's a tip from Erin at $5 Dinners, use the leftover sugar sprinkles from Christmas cookies, the green sugar sprinkles, which will make the pancake batter green for Saint Patrick's Day. Also here is a highly rated pancake recipe that you can use when you are making the "Instant" Pancake Mix bags up, a person on another team said it got great reviews from her family. Also the cinnamon is very good for diabetics & insulin resistance. I don't use Splenda as it's a poisonous chlorocarbon, but you can change this up to make it with a healthy sweetener, read the comments the sweetener or lack thereof if you use Splenda, makes a difference on how they raise:
