Stand Mixer

I recommend investing in a Kitchen Aid stand mixer. Although these start at around $200, owning one will save you tons of time and money in the long run. I bought mine a couple of years ago and it has been worth every penny! These amazing kitchen appliances can do everything from mixing cake batter and kneading dough to shredding cheese, grinding meat, and making pasta. You can purchase the extra attachments for added functionality starting at around $50 a piece. Owning a stand mixer will open up a whole new world of cooking from scratch. If you think about it, eating out with a family of four costs approximately $50 these days. If your mixer can help you skip eating out just four times it will have already paid for itself!

Crock Pot

Crock pots make cooking inexpensive meals at home so easy – why not invest in one? You can usually find one for cheap if you keep your eyes open at garage sales and thrift stores. The great thing about crock pots is that they can tenderize cheap meat roasts, making a tasty and healthy home cooked meal for less. You can also forget about buying lean ground beef by using your crock pot to make shredded beef instead. This will save about $2 per pound of meat.

Blender

A good quality blender can prove to be a very useful investment when cooking from scratch to save money. Instead of buying ready-made products, you can use your own blender to make smoothies, margaritas, milkshakes, frozen drinks, cooking pastes (such as pesto or tomato sauce), bread crumbs, shredded meats, baby foods, salad dressings, and so much more for less money!

So, if your looking to save money by cooking from scratch, it is well worth it to invest in any one (or all three) of these handy kitchen appliances.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
