Money Saving Ideas
In today’s economy we all can use some ideas on how to stretch the food budget. One of the easiest is to buy an ice cube tray. - You know, the plastic one like we used before ice makers. Here are some ways to use that to help you save money,
Soups - If you have left over stock, gravy or soups pour into the ice cube tray and freeze. When it is frozen solid pop the cubes out and put in a freezer bag. That way when you are making soup or sauces you can add as much as you need to boost the flavor.
Milk - I don't always get to use the milk before it goes bad. I started freezing it in the ice cube tray as it got closer to the expiration date. I use these in gravy or sauces or to make hot chocolate. Works great and I don't throw it out.
I am sure that many of the reader may have other ideas too. Please share them!
