Works For Me Wednesday- Saving Money on Lunches
It has been quite awhile since I participated in Works for me Wednesday at Rocks in my Dryer but I just have to share this!
When I was reading through the fliers a couple of weeks ago I noticed how much cheaper per pound whole hams were than deli sliced ham, the same is true for chickens, turkey, roast beef etc. It is certainly alot cheaper for us since we buy our meat directly from the farm. So it occurred to me to cook our own meats, slice them up and use them for lunch meat. It is much healthier, less expensive and easy. I just cook it, slice it, leave out enough for a few days and freeze the rest in small freezer bags (portioned for enough for a few days) then I can just pull out packages as we need them.
It works for me! For more ideas please visit Rocks in my Dryer.
