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!

Vegtable Garden Birthday Cake


My in laws are dedicated and fantastic gardeners, mother-in-laws side in particular. Summer family gatherings are a special treat because everyone's offerings to dinner table are cock full of home grown vegetables.


Home grown vegetables and fishing trip bounty at a Four of July family pot luck.
I contributed the beet salad. Read my Russina Vinegrette Salad reipe on Lazy Budget Chef here!

So it made perfect sense, when gathering for birthday party to serve a gardening birthday cake to the guest of honor. Can you believe this is a homemade vegetable garden cake?!


Pin this vegetable garden birthday cake idea for later!



Husband’s cousin made this adorable garden cake for her dad. So clever and everything is eatable!
She made the garden shed from rice Krispy treats covered in fondant. The garden boarders are pretzel sticks wrapped in fondant, and filled with a generous amount of icing and fondant vegetables.

The piece de resistance is the comical bunny diving head first into the carrot patch. Silly rabbit!


 Bunny butts make me giggle every. single. time.

She left no thoughtful detail behind and made the cake with dairy free ingredients so I could enjoy a slice too. How thoughtful!

Would you want this as your birthday cake?
