Money Saving Tips: Skip going out for breakfast and save money by making this inexpensive breakfast at home. Waffles are made from inexpensive basics, like flour, eggs, and of course some butter for nice crispy edges. If you're short on time, you could always whip up a waffle mix and I'm sure no one will complain. Shop around for strawberries on sale. I paid 1.99 and it was worth every penny.
