1. OATMEAL PACKETS
Oatmeal is a wonderful breakfast, but those little packets can be crazy expensive, not to mention loaded with added sugar. It’s easy to make your own and portion them into little baggies to save money.
Store-Bought: $3 per box of 10 packets | Homemade: $2 for 10 packets
Less added sugar + nutritious add-ons like dried fruits, seeds and nuts!
2. PANCAKE MIX
It’s so convenient to have pancake mix on hand. But why not mix your own? By doing so, you can control the ingredients and keep out any additives you might not want.
Store-Bought: $3.50 per box | Homemade: $2 for an equivalent amount of mix
Save $1.50 per box, and enjoy pancakes made without preservatives or hydrogenated oils.
3. FROZEN WAFFLES
Yes, frozen waffles go on sale from time to time, but their ingredient lists are long. Making a big batch of waffles on the weekend and freezing them is easy enough to do and a great way to save a few dollars each week. Simply pop one or two in the toaster oven, and top with fruit, peanut butter or nuts for a nutritional boost!
Store-Bought: $4.78 per 25-count box | Homemade: $4 to make 25 waffles
Save $1 per box, and enjoy waffles made with just a few ingredients.
4. FREEZER BREAKFAST SANDWICHES
Good job skipping the drive-through! Now ditch the frozen breakfast sandwich that is costing you way too much. Spend a little bit of time this weekend making your own freezer-ready breakfasts that will last you an entire week.
Store-Bought: $1.25 per sandwich | Homemade: 48￠ per sandwich
Save at least 75￠ per sandwich + less added sugar, salt and preservatives
