Well here are the things I do:
-Make my own when I can. We do hang out with friends on the weekend, instead of buy expensive loves of speciality breads I make simple honey wheat and white in my bread maker. Because it is home made it seems special. I sometimes make home made tortillas and flat bread.
-When on sale I buy refrigerator biscuits (like grands) We can never heat a whole can, so I freeze the ones we don't make. Then I can throw just one or two in when we want them for dinner. Also, if we don't get to them before their expiration date I do the same thing.
-I buy loaf bread when it is buy one get one free, or if there is a super price deal. Harris Teeter has B1G1 deals on bread all the time, they also have their store brand bread on E-Vic this week for .97 (limit 2)
-For garlic bread I buy french or Italian bread on managers special. Make my own at home and freeze it. When I freeze it I wrap enough for a serving in foil. Then I can just pull out a packet and throw it in the oven.
What are your ideas??
