Going the DIY route can truly save you a lot of money. Some traditionally packaged foods are really incredibly simple to put together that you will feel the silliest buying them in stores once you have tried making them at home. These include pasta sauce, hummus, almond milk, yogurt, soy milk, salad dressing, burgers, guacamole, spice rubs, and many more. Other little things you can do on your own to cut costs include cutting your own chicken, fruits, and vegetables, and buying whole cheese and meat. Let other people pay for the convenience. A little prep work is good for the soul! But if you must buy the ready-made stuff, remember to use coupons like this SAVE 50¢ on any size, any pepper sauce flavor from TABASCO brand.
