    MAKE YOUR OWN BREAD! I have been doing this for years, and my family loves it. I use whole grain flours such as barley I buy at the African market, white whole wheat and bread flour from Hudson Mill in KS — local to KC. Store bought bread almost always has junk in it, I also use honey, and organic molasses for sweetener. I make sure it has a nice soak to soften the shards on the whole wheat so it does not cut the gluten strands.
    It is not only cheaper. but soooooo gooood. My family won’t let me buy from the store.

    Also, I make bone broth in my power pressure cooker — I know the fans are here! I buy chicken feet from the Asian market, and add chicken bones from a carcass. It comes out like gold jello, and totally healthy as a base for everything. The left overs I keep a pot boiling for my dogs. I add it to their food, and one 16 yo girl can’t hear, or hardly see, but she can leap tables in a single bound.

    I loved reading this post and all comments, some great ideas to try. Here is my contribution from New Zealand.

    I make a self crusting quiche with whatever I have available. All you need is 3 or 4 eggs and a little milk,some cheese, half cup of flour and whatever you want to flavor it with. I have used some diced onion and bacon, chopped spring onions and ham, a few diced tomatoes and frozen veges as well as a can of tuna and cheese. Whatever you have to flavor it will work.
    It can go a really long way and one of those dishes great for large crowds – just make it in a huge pan

    I love this! I am a college student and we have found most of this to be really true and we try to save money while still enjoying our love of cooking! All of our friends always ask how we eat so well and cook so much and these budget friendly items are the answer!
