20 Ways to Save Money in Your Kitchen (at Don’t Waste the Crumbs)


For us, eating real food and being frugal go hand-in-hand. They have to!

Health food stores like Whole Foods and The Fresh Market, while wonderful places, make it seem like you have to spend a small fortune if you want to eat healthy meals made from nourishing, clean ingredients. We don’t have that kind of money!

But there’s another way. You can count the crumbs and make your pennies stretch. You can do small things to save big bucks in the long run. You can maintain constant vigilance–always on the lookout for ways to save money, to adjust your habits so that frugality becomes your default.

Today I’m sharing some of my top tips for saving money on real food in the kitchen. You’ll find my post over at Don’t Waste the Crumbs, a blog all about saving money, DIY, and cooking budget-friendly food from scratch!

  1. Thanks for these great tips Elsie. I especially like tip # 2 and tip #3. I want to save money and be kind to our planet so conserving paper where I can is important to me. One hint I can suggest is to buy only what I can use within a few days. That prevents needing to throw out spoiled foods. Lucky I live close to the market, Farmers’ Market, and grow some of my own produce.
