These days, it’s getting more and more difficult to hang onto our money, and many of us feel the pain in the cooking arena. Well, no more! In these increasingly tough economic times, it’s more important than ever to do things on a budget – shop on a budget, go out on a budget, and perhaps most importantly, cook on a budget. Learn how easy it is.
Frequently, folks think that cooking on a budget means sacrificing taste and nutrition, which really doesn’t need to be the case. Armed with budget-friendly menu ideas, even the most hard-core foodie can make meals, sides, even desserts – and not break the bank.
A great way to get things started is to check out your local Sam’s Club or Costco (or BJ’s or whatever is in your area). If you aren’t’ already a member of a warehouse club, take advantage of the “free for a day” offer that most of them have. This gives you a chance to mosey around the store for a day and check everything out to help determine if it makes sense to sign up for membership. If it doesn’t make sense for you, no sweat. At least you checked for free.
