What are the most frugal fifteen items in your pantry, freezer or refrigerator? Let's see if we can agree on a list of them! I nominate:
I would say to go with baking staples. You get more bang for your buck as opposed to boxed mixes and an unlimited number of recipes using those key ingredients.
Then for products to round out your baking and for other meal or stand-alone purposes
Toward main entrees and sides
For a 15th item I am going to sort of cheat and say seeds. I think seeds are covered under food stamps though, so if the government considers it a food I'll go with it and say it counts lol
If you hunt or fish meat is free.
