Convenience foods save money
Yes, convenience foods cost more then making a meal from scratch. However, I think a major money waster for lots of families is eating out often. It might cost me $10.00 for a meal that I fix with convenience foods but if that saves me from going out to eat I think I am actually saving money!
I enjoy eating out sometimes, but it is more fun and special when it isn't as often.
If people are having problems making ends meet or saving money they need to look at how often they eat out.
