Hot dogs freeze well. Buy them on sale or with coupons
and freeze them. Save money on leftover hot dogs by serving them in another
dish. You can make them thrift friendly cutting them up and serving them
in macaroni and cheese, or by making potato boats. To make potato
boats, cut them lengthwise, and top them with mashed potatoes and cheese.
