On page 203 of The Tightwad Gazette Amy Dycyzyn discusses the topic of baking.
There are ways to go about saving money while baking. Amy points out these ways:
- Purchasing items on sale. (I find that waiting until the holiday season to stock up on many baking supplies is essential. In December, I purchased flour at about $1.60 for 5 pounds, and sugar for less than that.)
- Use of powdered milk. (At last count, this was still cheaper than using regular milk, even skim.)
- Eggs. Amy pointed out that, when bulk baking, you can skimp on an egg here and there without it causing any problems.
I have a tip to add to Amy’s tips:
I often buy small or medium eggs and not large. All three sizes can be used interchangeably in almost any recipes.
What tips do you have?
