3 Appliances That Save Money and Time

Posted on March 14th, 2014 by Discount Debbie

Some appliances can save us time and money. They can keep us eating right even at the end of a busy day. Here are a few of my favorites.

Crock Pot

The main problem with eating at home and eating healthy is how much time it takes. Food needs to be thawed, prepared, and cooked. We don’t always have time for that. Nor do we want to eat nothing but microwavable meals. That’s why I recommend getting a slow cooker. You fill them up in the morning and turn it on. It takes all day to cook and I still have time to chase my toddler or run to the store. If you work outside the home it’s even more helpful. Imagine being able to come home to a home cooked meal in the evening that is already prepared and ready to eat. This will reduce the costs of eating out considerably.

George Foreman Grill

I love this particular appliance for a few reasons. First it automatically drains the grease out of our food while you’re grilling it. Second it’s small and produces less heat on really hot days. Third, it’s portable, so if you are in a hotel room, but want to make something small instead of buying overpriced hotel food or take out, you can. Last but not least, it sits further back on our counter and there is less of a chance of our toddler touching it while I’m cooking.


My parents had a freezer in our garage. They stored everything in it. There was bread, milk, meat, and frozen vegetables. It was one of the ways they would store food in case there was a hard month. This is also helpful if you find freezable items on sale and want to stock up. We just wrote the date we got it on the packaging and used what we had first bought first. Yes, it took more time to thaw food out, but at the same time it was less likely that we would run out of an ingredient and order take out instead of eating healthy.
