Save over $500 By Baking Bread at Home

By Edited Aug 28, 2016 0 0

Many families spend a lot of money buying bread.  Take a walk down that aisle in any supermarket and you will find a wide variety of brands, styles and flavors.

While some brands may cost as little as $1, understanding the list of chemical additives in those brands requires an advanced degree in chemistry.  The better quality brands of bread are much more expensive, costing nearly $4 per one pound loaf.

3 REASONS TO BAKE YOUR OWN BREAD

  1. Eat healthy
  2. Eat more cheaply
  3. Ease and convenience

Money Saving Steps

Before you can start saving money, here's what you need to do:

  1. BUY A BREAD MAKER
    You don't need to spend a fortune to get an excellent bread maker.  You can still get great results from lower priced, but good quality models.  Oster, for example, makes a line of bread makers priced around $70.

  2. JOIN A WAREHOUSE CLUB LIKE COSTCO, SAM's CLUB OR BJ's
    While it's not absolutely necessary, membership in these clubs is helpful because you can buy your ingredients in sufficient quantities and low enough prices, which will help increase your savings.  Annual membership dues are about $40.

Clubs

How much money can I expect to save?

How much money you will save depends on how much bread your family consumes.  A typical family that buys about 4 loaves each week, spends an estimated $731 a year.

Instead of buying the ready made product at the local supermarket, if the same family baked at home, the cost of each loaf would be less than $0.50.  In other words, a typical family will save anywhere from 50% to 90% by home baking.

The choice is clear.  The supermarket price is FOUR TIMES more expensive, even when the cost of the baking machine is included!  A four loaf per week family will spend as much as $731 a year on store bought bread.  Making a healthier loaf of bread at home costs $210 in a year.

Savings

Families today need to save money and eat better, more nutritious food.  Baking bread at home does both.  The Oster machine can make a 2 pound loaf in under an hour, if you like.  Or, if you want, you can set it to make a loaf in 3 hours.  Just add the ingredients and come back when it's done.  It's as easy as that.
