Two Expensive Items You Can Make At Home To Save Money

Updated on June 18, 2009

While people are trying to save money in any way that they can in these harder economic time’s people will want to discover the money saving way of making their own items at home. Now some people might have already found these methods and are using them now, but other people have not even thought about doing this. I know that for me I have discovered that by making items at home I can manage to save a ton of money over what the stores or restaurants charge. Here are some items that you can make at your home and enjoy just as well as the completed item that you can purchase at the store.

One of the first items if you are able to find a recipe for it that matches what you like is your seasonings. Now many people might not think of the seasonings costing a terrible amount of money, but if your family is like mine and uses seasoning on any dish that we have it can end up costing you a pretty penny. So if you consider that when you add up the cost of the ingredients that are going into the batch that you are making and the amount that it makes then you will have your overall cost of the production of the item. Then to see if you are saving money you will want to take the price of the item that normally would cost you and figure out the cost of the size that you just made to determine your savings.

The second item that you might not even think about making on your own, but you can save a ton of money on is some of your garden pesticides. Now I know that many people will use the store purchased chemicals to prevent damage to your plants, but you will be able to make your own using items in your kitchen. I would have to recommend you follow recipes that you can find in various gardening books to ensure that the recipes that I have found and use work really well and typically work even better than the commercially available items.

While you might think that just purchasing items from the store is the cheapest way to go you might want to consider making some of your own items if it is possible. I know that for me I have discovered that by making some of the items like spices, and some of my own pesticides. You will just want to make sure that you follow a book that can tell you exactly what to do step-by-step to ensure that you do not make your own spice so salty that the Dead Sea comes looking for its salt.
