Eat Well, Spend Less: Week One Link Round-Up

Thank you all for the fantastic response to yesterday’s post, Homemade Substitutes for Grocery Staples. It definitely showed that this Eat Well, Spend Less series is coming at a good time for many of you.

Remember, the list of pantry staples to make from scratch is posted for inspiration, not assignment! A few commenters felt overwhelmed by the enormity of the task, but the idea is to start small. Baby steps all the way.

Can I just share one response? I so loved what reader and friend, Julie, commented on the post:

“Such a brilliant topic. This is the meaning of true convenience food – not the availability of prepared foods at every corner store! True convenience is the skill to make it yourself.

Isn’t that so true.

Now hit the jump for the full Eat Well, Spend Less round-up of posts from the other bloggers.

Next Monday we’ll share our top five frugal meals. Stay tuned to Eat Well, Spend Less!

  1. Great ideas! I especially like the Denver Bargains post on using coupons. I have only just started using coupons (now that groceries are more expensive than ever!) and I was struggling to stay organized. Thanks for the link round-up! Great!

  2. what a great list of resources. I am LOVING the database of coupons over at Kingdom First Mom, what an awesome find!

    Loving this series. I am a big believer in making things from scratch. I know that having a well stocked pantry brings down my grocery bill big time. You presented some new items yesterday that I hadn’t thought of making from scratch and others that just sound tempting! Like the cinnamon molasses syrup! Yum!

  4. This is a wonderful list of bloggers! You are a great resource!
