I just love learning how other moms save time and money when it comes to the kitchen. This is the room I spent most of my time from making meals to cleaning it up, so I am always looking to increase efficiency and save money. Today, I’m sharing the ways I save time and money when it comes to my kitchen.
#1 Hefty Ultra Strong are the BEST kitchen trash bags. Not only are they outstanding quality, but they’re a new lower price! Plus, they have Arm & Hammer odor neutralizers with new scents like Citrus Twist and Lavender & Sweet Vanilla to help keep odors at bay. Plus, there’s even a scent-free option!
I love the stretchiness to the bags. They are tear resistant with an active tear resistant technology for better puncture resistance! I just hate it when I go to take the trash out of the can, and there’s a hole from something. With Hefty, I never have that problem! I can even trust the kids to take the trash out easily without a trail of leaks from a hole in the bag.
Here’s some great savings deals the next time you need to grab a box of Hefty Ultra Strong. Coupons.com has a $1.00 off one box of Hefty trash bags. Plus, you can earn $1.00 cash back via Ibotta after purchasing one box of Hefty trash bags.
#2 I buy hamburger and ground turkey in bulk packs and then I brown it all at the same time. Then, I separate out into one pound packages and freeze it. This way, I cut my cooking time down, and I have browned ground beef ready for tacos, spaghetti, soups, and more! Plus, when you buy in bulk packages of 3-5 lbs, the price per pound goes down.
#3 Make a meal plan. I am totally not organized enough to meal plan more than a week in advance, but every Sunday I grocery shop and plan out meals for the week. When I do this, it saves us money a couple of ways. First, I buy what I need for meals and not just random groceries. It also prevents us from eating out. I can’t tell you how many times when I don’t meal plan, I just run out of time for dinner and just gather everyone up to head to a restaurant. With our family size, dinner can easily be over $50.00 for all of us, and that can add up quick.
