Money Saving Tips (Part 1)

Being able to save money doesn’t just end by cutting down your expenses. Here are a few more tips on how you can extend your budget a little bit further…

· Buy butter or margarine on sale and freeze for future use. The higher the fat content in dairy products, the better they freeze. Milk products that are under 40% butterfat will separate, but heavy cream does well. You can freeze butter with no texture changes, but remember: fat can go rancid even in a freezer, so never keep it for more than a few months.

· Before you juice a lemon, lime or orange grate off the outermost part of the rind and freeze in a zipper food storage bag. When a recipe calls for zest, just pull it from the freezer.

· Always save bacon fat in the fridge. Use the bacon grease to baste roasting chickens or turkeys, to add additional flavor when frying, he even adds it to potatoes when mashing. While it may not be the healthiest practice in the world, bacon fat does pack a powerful flavor punch.

· To get the last bit of shortening from the can, fill with boiling water and let cool. The shortening will rise to the top and harden, when it can be easily removed.

· Save the crumbs from bags of chips (potato chips, tortilla chips etc.) and use them for breading meats or fish, topping casseroles, in meat loafs or just about any other place you would use breadcrumbs.

· If you have a recipe that uses just egg whites, you can refrigerate the yolks for later use by storing them, unbroken, in a small bowl, covered with cold water for up to two days.

· The end of a clean, empty 10 oz. can makes a handy cookie or biscuit cutter.

· Save money on chocolate! Shop the after holiday sales (Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Halloween, etc.) when seasonal candies are often marked down by 50% or more. If you buy good quality chocolate, you'll save a bundle and be bale to use it for cooking or recipes.

· If you have leftover scalloped potatoes, use them as a base for cream soups.

· Inexpensive flavored coffee, just add ground cinnamon to the top of grinds before perking.
