27 Things I Make Instead of Buy to Save Money

Are you looking for ways to save money? You're not alone! It can be tough to keep up with when you have surprise expenses.  By changing some of our daily habits, my family started to make some of our household items instead of buy them to help use reduce waste, save money, and frankly because it can be more convenient. I added the items on this list bit by bit over the years. Please do not think you have to make everything all at once! Sometimes I don’t have to make more of something because I made a bit too much the first time and we are still going through it (looking at you Must Can All the Jam! bender a few years ago.) Other times, it’s a one and done kind of thing like sewing on a button, and sometimes I buy the item instead of making it (like yogurt) because I’m too busy with other life things to keep up with the supply and demand.   Save this list of money saving ideas to your Pinterest Boards for later!

Asparagus and Tomato Stir Fry Saute Recipe

I did something a naughty.

I made a meal with food that Husband does not like.

Husband had to work late and was not going to be home for dinner. It’s the perfect time to make the asparagus he bought because he knows I like it.

I eyed balled the amounts. I was even naughtier because I used frozen asparagus. It was less expensive than fresh and will last longer since I had to find a time when I was cooking for myself.

I sautéed in olive oil:

Summer squash (frozen fresh from last summer)

Fresh tomatoes

Fresh Basil (from my patio herb garden.) Dried basil works too)

Minced garlic

Whole wheat egg noodles

I sautéed the vegetables until the squash was cooked thought. I served it over egg noodles because I didn't have whole wheat egg noodles because egg noodles cook up in a snap.  

A nice little meal that didn’t take a lot of time to make or heat up the kitchen too much. It’s perfect for summer!

I have to admit, when I read "I don’t even know if egg noodles come in a whole wheat version. Do they?", I pretty much had to stop myself from face-palming.

Then I did a little digging, and realized that wheat flour does go into egg noodles. For some reason, I guess I just had this idea that egg noodles were...flour free.

Anyway, you can probably find some whole wheat egg noodles. Or you could just make them. Making noodles is easy and fun, and you can just substitute AP flour for whole wheat flour.

I have a food blog, too, for easy recipes even a poor, clueless college student could make. Definitely, I can see myself pulling some inspiration from here. You have a lot to look at. I'd love it if you'd like to take a look at my blog: http://www.onepotonepan.wordpress.com
HI Valicat - We eat noodles a lot. I really should learn how to make them. I will definitely visit your blog!
