Welcome to CheapCooking! I started this site back in 2002 to help people learn how to save money on groceries by cooking from scratch, using up leftovers, and shopping wisely. If you quickly need some help, read my Quick Start page on saving money and planning meals and my article on Ten Ways to Save Money on Food.
You’ll learn how to cook dried beans, sure, but you’ll also learn how to plan menus, how to organize and store food in the refrigerator and pantry, how to cook ahead for the freezer.
And of course there are lots of recipes!
