Need to extend your budget? Then follow these Money Saving Tips

After squeezing lemons for cooking, freeze the rinds. Whenever you need freshly grated lemon zest, you can grate it from the frozen lemons. Saves a trip to the store or buying a lemon just for a small amount of zest.

· An economical way to buy pasta sauce is to buy a generic brand economy size of your choice and decant into single serve freezer containers and defrost in the microwave before use.

· Another frugal way of making use of lemons or limes that are past their prime is by squeezing limes or lemons that are starting to get too old and freeze the juice in small containers. When you need a tablespoon of juice pop it into the microwave and you are ready to go.

· Buy ground beef in bulk, and then separate it into 1-pound portions and freeze. You may also try browning the ground beef first before freezing; then you can just pull it out of the freezer to use for tacos or anything else that's easy!

· Make your own "instant" oatmeal by running regular oatmeal in a blender. Blending makes the oatmeal the same as "instant."

· Placing sugar cubes in cheese containers helps keep cheese mold-free.

· Wrapping celery in aluminum foil when putting it in the refrigerator helps keep the freshness for weeks.

· Freshening dry and hard lemons is effortless by placing them in a hot oven for a few minutes.

· Using leftover wine is a snap if you freeze it into ice cubes and use them as part of the liquid for casseroles and sauces.

· A handy tip for reviving day old tortillas is by placing the tortillas on a large piece of waxed paper, fold the open edges to make a packet and microwave on high for 15 - 35 seconds. They'll be almost as good as fresh made.
