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!

Get Organized! DIY Wine Cork Hooks


pantryhookbefore At first glance, my tiny pantry looks organized. I'm surprised at how much more space I have in the pantry after decanting my kitchen staples into glass jar! It looks pretty too.

What you don't know is that my kitchen jar project is really an ant proofing project that turned into a surprise free organization project. I'll give you the details on Lazy Budget Chef in a later post.


I found a crazy amount of Husband's pancake mixes hidden behind the aprons I had hanging off a coat hook attached to a pantry shelf. It is a result of our Out of Sight Out of Mind Disease because organizing the aprons that way blocks our view of what is stored on the pantry shelves below.




Pin the tutorial for later!


Time to get those aprons hanging on the wall and blocking the view to our food! I made strong and durable pantry apron hooks from  wine corks, wall anchors, and scrap wood. Scoot on over to DIY blog Condo Blues and read this post:
