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!

Three Things That Make Grilling Easier and More Fun

This post brought to you by Grate Chef, Inc.. All opinions are 100% mine.

My family likes to eat grilled food. It is quick. It is easy and it doesn't heat up the kitchen during the summer.
I am ready to put food on the grill as soon as the snow melts in the spring. My husband? Not so much. He isn't a fan of doing the grilling himself, which is fine since I like to cook that way. But it becomes a problem when my husband does cook on the grill, he doesn't clean it.

I don't grill as often as I'd like because cleaning the grill is such a pain, especially the dried bits of stuck on food my husband leaves on the grill.  Have you ever tried washing a grill in your kitchen sink because the grill brush doesn't get all of the charred bits off of it? It doesn't work very well at. all.

I decided to check out Grate Chef, hoping they can help us with our grubby grill problems. Turns out, Grate Chef decided to use their 40 years in the food service and food retail sales business to create a line of products that allow us backyard grillers to clean, cook, and maintain our grills using methods similar to professional chefs.

In other words, folks, Grate Chef® makes grilling easier and that makes it more fun.

Please meet the first Grate Chef® product in their line, my new BFF, Grate Chef® Grill Wipes. These little biodegradable beauties cling to the bristles of your grill brush to make cleaning and oiling your grill (which makes it a non stick surface) easy.

Grate Chef® Grill Wipes are the only product on the market that works to keep all types of food from sticking and keeping your grill grates clean. The oil will not burn off the grill or cause dangerous flare ups like spray oils and the pad won't burn like using a paper towel on a hot grill can.

Of course if you do get flares while grilling food with dripping juices, Grate Chef® has you covered. Grate Chef® Flare Down is 100% food safe and keeps grill flares from spreading.

After watching the Grate Chef Flare Down Video Demo I want to keep a bottle of this around too.

All of the Grate Chef® products work on all types of grills, which is great for us since we have several grills and not a lot of storage space. Although truthfully, there is one grill I use more than the others because I am not a fan of using lighter fluid. I've read too many horror stories about lighter fluid accidents and don't keep it around.

Grate Chef® must have thought about that too because I noticed they have another product that will come in handy around here - Grate Chef® Fire Starters.

I think Grate Chef® Fire Starters are a safer alternative because they are designed to start charcoal and wood while also burning hot and clean and without harmful toxins.  Grate Chef® Fire Starters can't combust during transport like some petroleum-based fire starters can which makes them perfect for camping and tailgating!

Don't just take my word for it. Check out all of the Grate Chef products yourself! You can find all of the Grate Chef® products  here to buy online or at hardware stores and supermarket retailers across the country. Click the link to find the store locations near you.
