General Tips to Save Dough

`Grow your own produce and herbs if you have the space (and sun) to do so.

`Make an apron out of an old towel to tie around your waist when you are cooking. This saved on paper towels.

`Follow the Rule of Fives- Food can be at room temperature for 5 hours, in the fridge for 5 days and in the freezer for 5 weeks (sometimes more depending on the way it is stored)

`Buy in bulk

`Shop local markets

`Buy a vacuum sealer to keep frozen foods for much longer.

`Compost to save on next year’s potting soils and make your produce ORGANICALLY yours.

`Always make shopping lists.

`Don’t go to the grocery store with a hungry husband. It will zero out all coupons and sales. Trust me on this one.

`Dry excess herbs from your garden.

`Use everything. Bones make great broths and stews, fruit and veggie scraps make great soils, seeds make more food.

`Freeze ginger, lemongrass and garlic. It makes grating it much easier.
