6 Simple Changes That Could Help You Save $2,997 a Year (Page 4)

3. Plug in the Slow Cooker

If you don’t have hours to be at home tending a braise, then try a slow cooker. It will give you the same effect (i.e., it makes inexpensive cuts of meat meltingly tender), but you can plug it in, leave for the day and come home to a dinner like this Rich Chicken Stew made with chicken thighs (instead of pricier chicken breast). Other inexpensive cuts of meat that work wonderfully in the slow cooker include pork shoulder, beef chuck and brisket.

Save $78 per year. (Replace 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breast [$4.99] with 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs [$3.49] once a week for a year.)
