Cookie Shortcut

Pin It One of the ways my family saves at the grocery store is we buy very few pre-packaged treats. This might seem like a no-brainer, we make our own; but we take it a step further. We make our own convenient treats! Here's what we do:

Whenever I make cookies, I double or triple the batch. I roll the dough in balls and place them on a cookie sheet and put them in the freezer. When they're frozen, I dump them all in a freezer bag and back in the freezer they go!
Instead of grabbing a bag of Chips Ahoy, we use that money for baking necessities because we know that we can always have fresh-baked cookies at home in about 10 minutes!

The fun part is, we always have an assortment of cookies, so we can do a dozen and everyone can eat their favorites!
What creative ways do you save money on treats?

I do that, too! It saves so much time and is really great when my kids get the munchies. Good to see it online.
