Practical Tips To Save Money On Your Breakfast (Because You Shouldn’t Skip Your First Meal!)
Breakfast is not just the first meal of the day, it’s also happens to be the most important meal of the day. However, that doesn’t mean that it has to be the most expensive. Most people want to have their breakfast as quickly as possible as they are often in a hurry in the first half of the workday morning. As a result, they often end up buying and eating convenience foods, which are definitely not as cheap as a meal one could cook at home. If you want to save your dollars on your first meal, just adopt a simple strategy. These tips are here to help.
Boil The Eggs The Night Before
How much do you typically pay for a dozen eggs? As of December 2018, eggs can cost anywhere between $1.06 and $1.12 for one dozen. How much do you have to pay for a boiled egg? One dollar or more, right? As you can see here, if you boil the eggs on your own, you can actually save a decent amount of money at the end of each month. If you compare the cost of eggs fresh from the basket and that of individually boiled eggs, you would definitely want to boil your own eggs at home. How do you boil an entire lot? It’s easy, as you just need to cover the eggs in a pot with slightly cold water, boil them as you wish and drop the boiled eggs in an ice bath. Your boiled eggs are now ready to be refrigerated for a week!
Stock Your Refrigerator With Quick Bites
If you want to have an on-the-go breakfast and you don’t want to spend your money on that expensive bacon sandwich, you can just defrost your own food and eat it the next day. Frozen breakfasts are actually a popular choice, and you may treat yourself with refrigerated (and defrosted) burritos, waffles, freezer-friendly sandwiches, which typically take a short prep time and can keep you full for a few hours at least. You can find a wide array of quick bites in your local departmental store. Just make sure you stock these essentials well in advance to save money.
Make Your Own Smoothie
Smoothies are yummy, but a basic one would set you back for 5 dollars. If you want cheaper smoothies, you can actually make these smoothies at home. You just need to buy a blender, which you probably already have, and stock some fresh and frozen fruits in your freezer to create your own smoothie. Frozen mangoes, peaches, blueberries, strawberries and kale can be bought from your supermarket, and you can also buy some nut milk or yogurt, and top it off with juice, ice or whatever. This way, you can actually save yourself a couple of bucks each day.
Make Your Own Coffee
Brewing your own coffee is actually a much cheaper option than buying a cup of coffee. This is how you can save money on your breakfast if you do yourself a little favor. As of December 2018, a bag of coffee beans would cost you roughly $10, and you can brew around 28 cups of coffee (12 ounces each). Buying 28 cups of coffee would cost you $56 or even more. You can obviously save more by buying coffee in bulk, but it’s highly unlikely that you would buy about 10 cups of coffee at once just to save some money. Hence, it’s always a good idea to make coffee at home. If you are not in a mood to make coffee, look for cafes and coffee shops that offer cool discounts to customers who bring their own mugs. That’s another way of saving some money on your daily morning coffee.
Fruits Are (Usually) The Cheapest Options
Having fruit in the morning is not a bad idea at all, and some fruits are essentially, dirt cheap. For example, a banana is possibly the cheapest thing that you can have for breakfast. There are many nutritionists who advise eating plenty of fruits for breakfast. If you are in a hurry to catch the train to your workplace, just grab a banana or an apple or some berries and munch the fruits on your way to the office.
If you really hate making your breakfast at home, make sure you get rewarded for your loyalty to your morning café or restaurant. There are many coffee shop chains and restaurant chains that offer cool discounts to their loyal customers.
