explaining 25 money-saving kitchen tips for frugal vegans
Alan Lakein whose 1962 book started time management as we know it, coined the 80/20 Rule which states:
80% of the value comes from 20% of the tasks. Out of a list of 10 items 80% of the value will likely come from doing just 2 items on that list.
In other words, don’t knock yourself trying to incorporate every useful suggestion on a large list of tips. Pick out the highest yielding activities, only. Not only will you get more done, you will feel less overwhelmed from information overload.
Saving money on a vegan diet in my opinion, isn’t any different from saving money on any other kind of diet. The same problems exist for all diets and the same solutions will work for all diets.
There are many helpful tips for eating more frugally, but I think the most value comes from these just these three tips:
1. Eat out less.
2. Make more food from scratch and use less prepared foods.
3. Stay aware of the prices of the things you buy at the stores in your area.
In regards to #2: make your own salad dressings, sauces and soups. Most of these items can be made quickly at home for a fraction of the cost.
Make a large pot of soup when you feel like staying home on a weekend. Lattle it out into single serving containers and freeze it.
