Save money purchasing thrift friendly, frugal, used aluminum
pots and pans at thrift stores and garage sales. They may look bad, but
you can make the inside look better with a little vinegar and water. Put
equal amounts of vinegar and water in the pan, and bring it to a boil.
Continue boiling until the pan looks good.
some more frugal tips to save money on pots
- Buy quality cookware and it
will last for years. Inexpensive pans will warp and not cook the food evenly.
- Always buy pots and pans that
come with lids. It may be cheaper to buy a pot hanging in a display rack,
but it isn't as versatile and you will just have to purchase more cookware.
- Look for pots at garage and
estate sales, as well as online. Sets of quality pots can often be purchased at stores like Costco. They also make great gifts.
