My mother-in-law gave me this tip when my husband and I first got married and moved into our first home. I tried it and it's true, and it's also healthier and earth friendly.
This was my Mother-in-laws advice too. She said to me one time, a wf can throw more away with a teaspoon than her husband can carry home on his back. Somehow that was always in the back of my mind when I was clearing the table. Save most everthing. It will come in handy. I collect left over veg in a quart jar in the freezer. Just add the new to what is already there. Make soup or casserole
If you really need the convenience of a mix, try making your own. There are a lot of mix recipes available that are just as good or better than the store bought!
I enjoy cooking from scratch and it is economical and you know what ingredients are going into the recipe. I have learned from trial and error to make biscuits, breads, pasta, sauces, soups, meats and other recipes.
My family loves the home-cooking!
I agree that cooking from scratch is much better for you. I am working on no preservatives in my diet and this actually is worth the work. I also canned or froze most of my food for this winter.
