Simple Savings in Your Pantry!


I save money by finding ways to stretch what is in our pantry into more than one meal.

Crushed Tomatoes

$0.67 Can of 28 oz. Tomatoes/3 meals:

Meal 1:
On Sunday, I made decided to make picadillo because I had olives in the cabinet to use up. The recipe calls for 1 cup of tomato sauce.

Meal 2:
I added 1 tablespoon to the leftover lentil soup on Monday.

Meal 3:
I used the remaining sauce for spaghetti and meatballs on Tuesday. I use mini meatballs and our children are not fans of too much sauce so the remaining sauce is more than enough for the meal.
