It's no secret that cooking from scratch is less expensive than buying prepared foods or eating out. But even the most frugal person may find themselves unwilling or unable to spend the time required to make everything themselves.
I sometimes wish that I was one of those moms who send their children to school with peanut butter and homemade jam on homemade bread. But frankly, I can usually get a loaf of bread on sale and the spreadable fruit for just $1. I know that homemade soup is generally healthier than canned, but I always reach for the can rather than pulling out the veggies and broth and making it myself!
On the other hand, I can also get jarred pasta sauces for under $1 as well, but I make pasta sauce from scratch 99% of the time. I can also get pretty good deals on cookies, yet I find myself baking fresh ones every few days. I can't remember the last time I bought muffins, biscuits or even a cake (except a few Carvels here and there).
What are your "always from scratch" items? What would you never even consider making?
