I was considering asking Santa for a bread machine for Christmas to reduce grocery costs. If we made our own bread, will we eventually save money by making our own bread rather than buying the store bought bread? I have two small kids that like peanut butter and jelly in thier school lunches. Also, we live in a small town so I don't have the option to go to the discount store to buy bread and rely on sales to buy loaves of decent wheat bread that seem to get smaller and smaller each year. I just don't want to make an investment into a machine that won't be helpful to the household. Thanks for any help anyway can provide!
