You can have spreadable butter cheaper than what is offered in the store. Just make your own and turn one cup of butter into two cups of spreadable butter. Let two sticks of btter soften to room temperature. Using an electric mixer, mix 1/2 of room temperature water into the butter. Then, slowly mix in 1/2 cup of canola oil. Put the mixture into a plastic container with a lid and refrigerate. For more information, visit http://www.livingonadime.com/frugal-living-tips/.
