Frugal Luxuries: Bagels

You won’t save a ton on this one, but it’s a quick and easy way to save a few pennies:

Cut your own bagels.

Pre-cut bagels are more expensive than ones that are left whole. (At least as far as I’ve ever seen) I prefer the Costco bagels, they’re tasty and freeze well.

Just remember to cut and freeze them within a few days or they might get moldy. I’ve lost more than a few bagels that way, which of course defeats the purpose of saving cash (and results in food waste).

When I saw the title of this post I thought "Oh, she's making bagels!" LOL!

It's one of those things on my list of things to try, home made bagels. Until I get the chance, I have to agree with you, Costco bagels are yummy! ;)

Haha - sorry about the fake out!

Making bagels is on my list of things to do, and when I do I'll make sure to post about it. :)
