Response to What Are Your Best Cheap Cooking Hacks?:
I know I commented with this on another similar Buzzfeed article, but it bears repeating… Invest in a FoodSaver. Doesn’t have to be that brand (that’s just what I have), I think any vacuum sealer will do. Most of them cost under $100 and the amount of savings you’ll get out of them is much, much more than that. A lot of food cost is because of food waste. Buying in bulk tends to be cheaper, but with perishable items, you’re often washing the savings down the drain. Getting a vacuum sealer means that you can buy items you use a lot in bulk, vacuum seal them, and freeze them for months to come. I do this with fish when it’s in season, but also hamburger, chicken breast, cheeses… anything that can be easily frozen. And to be honest, there’s nothing that makes me feel as simultaneously badass AND thrifty as buying a whole salmon, filleting it myself, portioning it and freezing it and having delicious Copper River salmon for like, six months. I’m investing up front so I don’t have to buy fish throughout the year!
