Cutting Your Grocery Bill Like Crazy

Americans spend WAY too much on groceries! After housing and transportation, we spend more money on food than anything else- close to 15% of our expenses. On a recent episode Matt mentioned how his family eats on $1 per person per meal, and so we figured it was time to spend an entire episode discussing how you can cut your grocery bill like crazy! If you’re not really into cooking we give some very easy and helpful tips that you can start trying out today, but we also talk about some more advanced and cost savings ways of putting meals together if you’re ready to take it to the next level.

  1. I listened to your grocery podcast and the conversation about making your own bread got me to write you guys. I just bought this book based on a few recommendations. I haven’t tried the recipe yet, but there are so many raves I’m going to share the link. Basically you make the dough, and it can be stored for a couple of weeks in your refrigerator. The basic recipe is good for multiple loaves, rolls, etc. Everyday Cheapskate just published a post about the recipe, also. Your readers might be interested in this book so here’s a link. FYI I bought a used copy, but the book is also available on Amazon.

    1. Mmm, if it’s possible to make bread that looks as good as the loaf on the cover of that book then sign me up- I’ll definitely be sharing this with Kate since she’s the baker at out house.

      Thanks Jenny!
