I was recently given a suggestion for snacks.. if your family likes chips and stuff like that…takes a little time but my husband and daughter thought it tasted great… make your own potato chips.
take a couple of large potatoes and thinly slice them, and then fry them and let drain, they are fantastic and 2 potatoes are alot cheaper than one bag of chips. Also if you like tostito’s or corn chips, either buy or make tortillas and cut in pieces and fry and you have corn chips. Crackers are really easy to make also, and you can flavor them however you want.
Like I said takes a little time and some planning but will save considerable in the long run… Good Luck in your endeavors.
