The Costs of Making Homemade Bread

| 5/30/2019 6:02:00 PM

Basic homemade bread costs less than commercial loaves, especially bakery-style loaves.

However, it’s relatively easy to spend a significant amount of money on homemade bread if you’re not paying attention to the cost of high-quality and/or organic flours.

It goes without saying that, whenever possible, avoid paying shipping costs for flours you purchase online. The cost of delivery can easily double the original price of your flour.


If your flour source requires a minimum purchase to qualify for free shipping, determine what supplies you’ll need for three or four months and stock to help reduce the overall cost of your bread.

If you prefer the quality and/or results of using a higher cost flour, consider the option of blending a more expensive product with one you can purchase at a lower price.
