What is a Grocery Store Loss Leader? How Does it Save Money on Groceries?

When I got on out on my own in the big bad world, I quickly learned that things cost money.  Shocking, I know.  I wanted to learn how to save money and eagerly dove in to read what everyone considers the epic and all time frugal living and money saving guidebook The Tightwad Gazette by Amy Dacyczyn (you can learn more about it here.) ( Disclosure: I am including affiliate links for your convenience .)  Despite the preachy tone in the later chapters of the book (when you can tell she admitted to be burned out on writing her newsletter in the 90’s) and a few of the now outdated tips (floppy disks!) there are still some decent frugal hacks in her book that are useful today.  For example, Dacyczyn’s  (she pronounces it like Decision )  greatest money saving tip is how to save money on groceries by only buying the Loss Leaders.  Only problem is Dacyczyn doesn’t tell you what  a loss leader is and how to find them in the  store.   Save this money saving idea to your Pinterest boards f

Sriracha Ketchup Recipe

Nothing tastes better than a juicy hamburger, hot dog, or French fries topped with ketchup.
Unless it is sriracha ketchup.

That’s right, my friends, America;s favorite hot sauce has added its spicy goodness to all matter of prepared foods and now ketchup. I bought a bottle of sriracha ketchup the moment I saw in the grocery.

And my husband was insanely happy.

Until we ran out.

And I couldn’t find sriracha ketchup at the grocery store.


But no worries!  It is so fast and easy to make homemade sriracha ketchup I may never buy the prepared stuff ever again because it takes less than 5 minutes to make!














How to Make Sriracha Ketchup the Easy Way!




I use only two ingredients in my sriracha ketchup recipe. Some folks like to add extra vinegar or lime juice, but they reduce the heat in the sriracha sauce, which already has those ingredients to be begin with.

Other folks add honey to make it sweeter. Again I leave it out since I’m using prepared ketchup that is already a little sweet. (You can use homemade ketchup if you like if you have it.)


Pin this recipe for later!

You will need these ingredients:


Small individual batch:


2 Tablespoons of sriracha sauce

1/2 Cup of ketchup


Larger batch:


4 Tablespoons of sriracha sauce

1 Cup of Ketchup

How to make it:


1. Toughly mix the sriracha sauce and ketchup together in a bowl.

You can add more or less Sriracha Sauce to your mixture depending upon how hot you like it
.
2. Enjoy!


I refilled our empty sriracha catsup bottle with homemade sriracha ketchup in 1 cup batches until the bottle was full.
