3. A 2 lb. bag of sauerkraut at the supermarket costs over $3

I was able to fit 3 heads, total weight close to 8 lbs., of shredded cabbage into the crock pot. At .63 cents a pound, I saved a few dollars.

As I'm low income, I get $30.00 in coupons from the local Michigan State University Extension office for which I can spend at local farmer's markets. This fall, I could spend that on cabbage, buy a couple of food safe 5 gallon pails and make enough sauerkraut to last the winter and spring at little cost.
