Two of the blogs I follow regularly are LifeAsMom and GoodCheapEats, both written by Jessica Fisher. In October she posted each day about 31 Ways to Save Money in the Kitchen and 31 Days of DIY Convenience Foods.

By making your own convenience foods, you save money and you can also regulate the ingredients. I have started making a number of foods instead of purchasing them already made.
