Frugal Family: Homemade Treats

1. Microwave Popcorn (the healthier way)

Deal Time: Anytime

Where to Find It: In your kitchen and your local grocery store

You need: A brown paper lunch bag, scotch tape, popping corn, salt and melted butter (optional). Pour ½ cup popping corn into the bag (no oil necessary) and fold/tape the bag shut afterward. Lay the bag on its side in your microwave and cook until there is approximately 5 seconds between pops. Every microwave is different, so you need to experiment with yours to see a more exact time.
