This Sparked Me!

You'll save more by switching thing from premade/packaged foods to staple whole foods:
1. uncles bens minute rice - bulk food white/brown rice
2. fruit cups - buy produce, chop up into tupperware, n store
3. spaghetti sauce - make your own, its easy and cheaper!
4. ketchup/mayo - make your own, its easy and cheap!
3. lemonades/teas - make your own, its easy and cheap!

People don't think to make their own stuff, but most of it is much cheaper to make yourself, and it tastes good

MORE INFORMATION:
I have found that I can afford mostly organic products when i stick to buying only simple and whole foods (rices, fresh/frozen fruits and veggies, oats, barley, beans, nuts, chicken, turkey). The things that are pricey are anything premade or preserved! I make my own sauces, teas , etc! YUM!

    tip on the fruit salad idea- a little lemon juice goes a long way to zest up chopped fruit and keep it from going brown! My fav' fruit salad that I prepare myself is: Fresh chopped kiwis, red plums, and grapes (with half the juice of a sliced lemon) . delish!

    so true, on that same vein, I have been thinking of making my own cleanser for my face. right now I am using something that has pear and poppy seeds and its extremely expensive. I think I can make it. In fact I am going to try and make it.

    Really great idea to share. I know I try to make as much from scratch as possible. It always tastes so much better too! emoticon
