But i've found that with a bit of organization (every other Sunday a cook-and-freeze day, throwing soup-worthy salad vegetables into the freezer twice a week, making breadcrumbs of stale bread or bread mistakes) and a commitment to making as much from scratch as I comfortably can, there's real money to be saved.

thanks so much for your comments and for sending the blog to others. when i found out i was celiac i bought everything and made nothing (mostly out of stress, i think). now that i've calmed down and can think straight again, i make as much as i can myself and mostly buy raw ingredients. it helps a ton, financially.
