Saving money in the kitchen doesn't need to mean working harder. These easy kitchen hacks will help you stick to your budget and free up precious time!
We all want to save money in the kitchen without sacrificing valuable time. Cooking from scratch can seem like an impossible task, but these easy kitchen tips will help you save both time and money. Prepare nutritious meals and enjoy your time in the kitchen!
Cooking in bulk might sound like more effort and money! The good news is that if you put in a little effort upfront, you'll reap the rewards later on. You'll end up having nights where you don't need to cook or do dishes. What a win! Fewer dishes, less waste, and (usually) less electricity to get it all cooked! There are a few other kitchen hacks that fall into the same category. All of them require a bit more effort to start with, but the time and money savings make them worthwhile in the end. Canning, prepping freezer meals, and mixing up your own baking mixes all fall into the upfront-effort category.
This is a kitchen hack you can't afford to miss! Store your leafy greens in an airtight container with a piece of paper towel or napkin to keep them fresh and crisp for longer. The kitchen towel absorbs moisture which stops delicate salad greens from wilting.
Storing your fresh produce the right way can help you cut down on waste and save money in the kitchen. Have a look at this great article for more easy kitchen tips to help you waste less.
An instant pot is one of the best kitchen hacks for cooking. It helps you save time and money and you won't heat your kitchen in the summer. An instant pot cooks food much quicker than other methods, but the best part is that it doesn't need to be watched. Some recipes have a few steps, but in most cases, once it's on, you can walk away and forget about it! That means you're saving time and money and reducing your mental load.
Usually choosing packaged foods means that you're making a nutritional sacrifice. Frozen vegetables are the exception to the rule! Very little nutritional value is lost in the freezing process and the vegetables are usually super fresh when they're frozen. Frozen vegetables are often cheaper than fresh vegetables and they're already sliced and peeled. The best part is that they're easy to store, so you won't be dealing with waste if you don't get to use them as planned.
Sticking to your budget shouldn't mean compromising on the joy that comes from food. Save has some great ideas to help you live life to the fullest without breaking the bank. Learn all about canning, try these delicious, budget breakfasts, or start making your own pantry staples.
