Cooking from scratch is/can be a huge money saver. I think it is a large part of the frugal lifestyle. There are many items where it is much cheaper to make the item from scratch - and most of the time it tastes much better. With our busy schedules, sometimes convenience wins.
I posted a poll for the month of May asking you how often you cook from scratch. Thanks to all who voted! Here are the results:
Most of you either cook from scratch daily or more than twice a week! Good for you.
Up until a year ago when I was working full time, I NEVER cooked anything from scratch. It seemed like too much of a hassle. I am finding with my part time hours, I am enjoying making things from scratch. This helps our budget and the family is happier too. I have also learned that many things I thought were so hard to make were actually very easy! I would fall under the more than twice per week category.
So how about you? Do you cook from scratch? Are you a convenience food junkie?
Also, please be sure to vote on the poll for June. I am interested to see the results!
