There are many areas that I can tweak in our budget, but I think for us food is probably the easiest. I've talked about my Pantry in previous posts, and about how easy it is to save a lot of money if you have the space to store the food. And better still if you can view the foods easily.
One thing that we do to help with the food bill is that we rarely waste any food. Organization and menu planning really helps with this one.
So we had a lot of zucchini a couple of weeks ago. We'd eaten it several night and shared it with people and we still had this left.
So I brought out the food processor and ended up with quite a lot of shredded zucchini.
Which I vacuum sealed in 2 cup portions. It will go in the freezer.
This food will be much more appreciated this winter when used to make bread or added to quiche or casseroles than it would be if serve it too often right now.
But of course I couldn't resist making some bread.
And it was appreciated plenty. :)
