Thrifty Tip #14: Make a Pot of Soup Each Week

 This tip was suggested by a friend and it's a very good one.

Soups can be hearty and very filling, yet are usually very economical to make.  They are a great way of using up a glut from the vegetable garden or for taking advantage of cheap seasonal produce.  Soup usually reheats well, so is a great stand-by for dinner on busy nights.

Over the past couple of months I have made a big pot of soup every Sunday.  I take a container of home-made soup to work each day during the week and heat it in the office microwave for lunch.  As my office kitchen also has a sandwich toaster, I also take a couple of slices of bread and some cheese and make a hot toastie to have with my soup.  This is much cheaper and healthier than buying my lunch each day.

Do you make soup?  What is your favourite kind?
