So I'm slowly learning how to save money here and there in the grocery budget. I think I'm going to start documenting all the things I've learned here. No time like the present so, here's...
Money Saving Food Tip #1:
Make Your Own Popcorn
Ever since Amanda posted on making your own popcorn, I've been hooked - and richer! A bag of popcorn kernels is about a dollar and makes at least 15 big pots of popcorn. Beat that with that microwave crap - which is more expensive, not as good for you, and tastes worse!!
Okay, if you don't eat popcorn, this won't save you a dime, but if you do? Brilliant!! It also only takes 3 minutes to make - the same as in the microwave.
Only downside? You have to shake it while it pops. But maybe that could be a form of exercise?
