Making it instead of buying it - is generally much cheaper. It is often healthier too. You know exactly what is in your food, your cleaning solutions, whatever you are making.
I tend to make a lot of things that most people just buy. I much prefer homemade chili and soups. They taste so much better than the stuff in cans! I can make a little or a lot - if a lot, I can freeze helpings for another time.
I make almost all of my cleaning supplies. I use basic ingredients and mix them for various uses and I also have my Dawn dish soap - which is good for so much.
I make my own Rice a Roni mixes - I can control salt and flavorings.
Love mixing up my own spice blends.
I just love, love homemade biscuits (scones) - instead of canned. I can make a batch and freeze and have for another time.
I love my homemade tortillas - they are just so light and yummy and super easy.
Whatever I don't see in responses, I may make a post of recipes of things we can all try.
Hope you all play along. Love that we can all teach each other and have fun and learn new things together.
Have a great Wednesday!
