Homemade French Fries are a great way to save money. By making your own french fries not only do you save big but you are also to provide your family with a non processed version of french fries. I like to stock up on bags of potatoes at the store when they are on sale. Then I take an afternoon and make these french fries and store them in the freezer for when I need them. My boys like them better than the store bought frozen bag ones and I like that it is a lot cheaper to make them than to buy them.
You will be amazed at how easy it is to make these and if you are like me you will never buy them again 😉 Homemade French Fries – A great way to save money and healthier too!
