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!

Best Ever Black Bean Hummus Recipe

I’m not really a sports person except every two years during the Winter and Summer Olympics. The Olympics is my Super Bowl. My World Series. For 18 days I am parked in front of the TV, chips at the ready.

Well I might be ready but my chips aren’t. They need dip.

Most hummus recipes are made with garbanzo beans (also called chick peas.) I’m doing something a little different and using black beans to make black bean hummus. The black beans take less time to rehydrate in my Instant Pot (<—big ol affiliate links in this post!) than garbanzo beans but most importantly, I came up with this recipe when I wanted to eat hummus and only had black beans in the house.

Easy Black Bean Hummus Recipe


how ot make black bean hummus recipe
Keep reading! This is an easy recipe - promise!

You will need:

2 Cups of black beans (either canned or rehydrated and cooked)

2/3 Cup of Tahini

3/4 Cups of lemon juice

2 Cloves of diced garlic (approximately 1 tablespoon) – more or less to taste

1/4 Cup of black olives

1 Teaspoon of Salt


Step by Step How to Make It:

1. Thoroughly mix together the black beans, tashini, lemon juice, garlic, black olives, and salt.
You can use a blender, food processor, or do what I did and mash the ingredients together with a potato masher in a mixing bowl because my blender isn’t powerful enough to do the job.

And that’s it! You can serve this black bean hummus chilled or at room temperature and with a variety of dipables. I’m using pretzel thins here but you can use pita bread or chips, vegetables, or your favorite cracker. Heck sometimes I use black bean hummus as a sandwich spread or condiment.

Yum!
