Baking from the Discount Grocery Shelf

Category Baking
Baking can get very expensive, especially if you are using unusual ingredients. You can often find many products in the markdown section of your local grocery store. Check after holidays for steep discounts on seasonal items.

I recently started checking the discount shelves at my local supermarkets. I have found some really good savings from time to time. Earlier this year I picked up a couple of bags of Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix. On another trip they were discounting Andes mint chips. These products sat around in the cupboard for awhile until I had a sweet tooth attack and made a small batch of cookies.

Both products were half price; 75 cents for the cookie mix and $1.50 for the bag of chips of which I only used a quarter cup. The only other things I had to add were two tablespoons of water and 1/2 stick of butter. Now while the cookies were clearly not a required food purchase, but they did provide me with a small snack to be spread over several days. Not bad.
