One of the simplest ways to save money (especially if you love bread as much as I do) is to home-make your bread rather than buying it at the store. A loaf of bread from the bakery at the grocery store costs at least $2. If you buy all the necessary staples to make bread at home, you can make never-ending loaves of bread for probably less than 50¢ or 25¢ each. (And most of the ingredients you probably already have on hand!)
If you’re worried about it taking too much time, a bread machine is your best friend. You literally throw the ingredients in the machine and let it do its thing. A few hours later, you have a beautiful and delicious loaf of bread that feeds the entire family.
Yes – bread machines can be expensive. You can often find them at thrift stores and garage sales, though! I’ve bought a couple different bread machines over the years, and they have never cost me more than $10 each.
Do you make bread at home? Do you enjoy it and find that it is much cheaper?
