Store-bought bread is generally not healthy. It has additives and refined sugar that are unnecessary. And, if you get a fancier bread that will be healthier than the average loaf on the shelf, you will pay dearly for it.
So it’s time to save in time, production costs, and in the long run by making your own bread.
- No more driving to the store for bread. By making bread at home, you can also make multiple loaves in a batch (one-time) and freeze it ahead.
- While you are making bread in a machine, you can do other things in your home; leave it unattended safely and multitask.
Save on productions costs:
- Bread at the store costs more. Lately, because of raising gas prices, bread costs are up about 10 % to 11 %. By baking at home you can get that cost down from about $2.00/loaf for white, unhealthy bread or from about $4.00/loaf of healthy, fancier breads.
- The average cost of bread baked at home is between $1.20/loaf and $1.97/loaf. If you eat just one loaf of bread a week, that’s at least a $52.00 savings.
- You can also buy the ingredients for your bread in bulk and save on production. There are only three basics ingredients for bread: water, flour, and yeast.
- You can make a variety of foods with a bread machine: pizza dough, rolls, even cakes. Now think about the additional savings when you are not buying these products out-of-home.
- Now, the bread machine–it will average you between $200 to $300. But, it will pay for itself in just a couple years and has little maintenance cost. It will last for years and years, like having a car that is paid for and still runs.
- You can also find good used bread machines, sometimes for as little as $15, and you can shop online at places like Amazon and eBay to save on machine costs.
- Bread machines use less power than an oven, about the same as a coffee maker, and you will not produce the heat of an oven that may cost you additionally in air-conditioning expenses.
Saving over the long run:
- In addition to saving time along with gas and car costs, when you make your own bread you save long-term on disposal costs. Store-bought bread has to be packaged, and that packaging goes to the land fill which costs you as a tax payer and in fees when you take your garbage to the landfill.
- You will also benefit from not eating store-bought bead because store-bought has lots of refined sugar and additives like citric acid. Citric acid is made with mercury, and fructose is one of the major causes of diabetes. In the long run, good home-made bread saves you on your medical and health care costs.
Save money and time by making your own bread with a bread machine. Think, too, about the long-term good effects and the accrued savings you earn by eating from your own kitchen.
