Fast food menus claim to be cheap, but what you may not realize is how much you could save by simply replacing one fast food meal a week with a homemade one. Not only will it save you money, these homemade alternatives are lower in calories and higher in nutrients.

A fast food meal costs around $5-$7, but a homemade meal averages only $1-$3 per person. That's a 40%-79% savings per person!

The savings are not limited to dining out, but can expand to the grocery store, too. On average, a good loaf of bread runs just over $4. However, a loaf of bread made from scratch is only 93 cents. Magnify that savings to your other bread products, such as dinner rolls or buns, and it really adds up.
