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!

Eat from the Pantry Recipe: Spicy Tuna and Caper Pasta

Yesterday the cupboard and refrigerator were a bit bare after cleaning them out before a weekend trip.  I thought it best to eat lunch before I went grocery shopping later that day. If I didn't, I knew I"ll fall into any of the traps in my Six Hidden Grocery Budget Busters post.


  This  pasta with tuna and capers recipe took around 10-15 minutes to make and all with basic pantry staples.

I poked around the pantry and found some pouches of tuna fish behind a jar of capers. I vaguely remember buying capers for a tuna fish recipe I saw in passing online. Unfortunately I apparently pinned every other recipe to my Pinterest boards except the tuna and caper recipe I saw and intended to eventually make.


With the help of my BFF Google, I may not have found the original tuna and caper pasta dinner recipe but instead I found a better one.  I whipped up Simply Recipe's Pasta with Tuna and Capers in White Wine Sauce  with pantry staples for lunch. Yum!


 Here's a photo of the not fancy plated version of the recipe.

 So good. So quick. So easy to make.

I made sure to pin it to my Pinterest recipe board so I can find the recipe and make it again in the future. Follow me @condoblues on Pinterest for more recipe ideas!

 What is your favorite way to serve tuna fish?
