Canned Tomato Sauce
Frozen Fruit Juice Concentrate
When I look at this list two things occur to me:
1. For the most part, these are the foods I grew up eating in my large family with six kids to feed.
2. These foods are still a good buy for delicious, nutritious and affordable meals.
By planning meals around these items, plus some staples like flour, sugar, salt and spices, and then shopping the weekly specials on fresh meats and produce, you can stretch your food dollar and still eat feed a family with today’s soaring food prices. If you clip coupons, you’ll save even more on items you probably buy frequently:
Soups and stocks
In fact, you can probably save enough to splurge every now and then on a nice meal at a real sit-down restaurant or an elegant dinner at home.
