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!

How to Make Orangina at Home!

After a 7 mile run, Husband likes to quench his deep down body thirst with an Orangina.

This can get pricey at the quantities Husband’s been sucking down on a weekly basis so he came up with a recipe for a not-so-pricey homemade Orangina knockoff recipe.

Later, I made our homemade Orangina even cheaper by buying Husband a Soda Stream Soda Maker (get more information about it here) so he can carbonate and his own soda water.
