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!

Dijon BBQ Sliders Recipe

Right now I am not a Lazy Chef but a Too Bummed to Cook on Blitzkrieg Chemo Nights Chef. The difference is that as a Lazy Chef, I don’t have time to cook majorly elaborate real food meal and as a TBtCoBCN Chef I just stare at the kitchen, hoping the food will prepare itself on Blitzkrieg’s chemotherapy days.

Then poof! A little happy email hit my mailbox with a Dijon-BBQ Sliders Recipe that solved the feeling too blah to make dinner dilemma. This recipe takes less than 30 minutes to make and is a different take on BBQ, which I appreciate. Husband is the BBQ King of our condo. I can take or leave most of it.

So I made it. Although I used leftover chicken Husband made for an earlier meal instead of the rotisserie chicken in the original recipe. I also shredded cabbage and carrots I had on hand instead of coleslaw mix.

It was good.

Dijon BBQ Sliders Recipe


You will need:

2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken (or shredded leftover chicken)
2 cups shredded coleslaw mix
4 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp sugar
½ cup barbecue sauce
¼ cup Dijon mustard
¼ tsp black pepper
8 slider sized hamburger buns or dinner rolls split

Make it

1. Thoroughly mix the chicken, barbecue sauce, and Dijon mustard together in a saucepan.

 2. Warm the chicken mixture in the saucepan over low heat on the stove.

3. In a separate bowl, mix the vinegar, sugar and black pepper together until the sugar dissolves.  

4. Thoroughly mix the vinegar, sugar, and black pepper and coleslaw together and set aside.

5. Once the barbecue chicken is heated through, spoon the mixture onto the bottom half a roll, add a layer of coleslaw, and top it off the other half of the roll.

 TIP: If you like it hot, you can add your favorite hot sauce to the barbecue-mustard sauce. If you’re more a of Southwestern fan, park a slice of smoky bacon to your slider.

With this dinner saving recipe, I got a press release asking me to pass along that Sam’s Club is having a free Spring Taste of Sam’s Club tasting weekend from April 27 to 29, 2012. The event is open to both Sam’s Club members and non-members.

Since Sam’s sent me a recipe that helped me make a dinner from leftovers, I felt I should pay it forward and let you Sam’s fans know about their event.

Husband and I could use it as a cheap day date since those are off the table for awhile. This would be like a  date but with groceries on the side. We go wild and crazy on date night!

PS: Sam's Club didn't pay me or bribe me with goodies to tell you about their event. I decided to help them out after not deleting a pitch like this like I often do and making the recipe because I was stuck with an idea for dinner. It was pretty good and I know some of you are Sam's shoppers and would like the info. There ya  go FTC, disclosed enough for ya?


Yum! This sounds wonderful and your picture looks amazing! Loving the homemade coleslaw - so much healthier without buckets of mayonnaise. :)
