    I hope that I'm eligble to play this one, I just won a challenge last week (thank you again!)!

    What 3 things do you make yourself or do yourself to save money?

    My top three things are making homemade clone/copycat recipes for restuarants dishes. We used to eat out ALOT but since I discovered that I can make my own and save a ton of money I think we saved about $1500 or so this past year.

    My second one is making the laundry sauce for dummies, this one has saved me a ton of money, I LOVE IT.

    Lastly, making homemade gifts saved us a ton of money this year as well. I didn't realize when I first started out how easy it was to repurpose and item and turn it into a really great gift. We bought a tv stand on a lawnsale for $10 and I refinished it and painted it to turn it into a kitchen for my niece. It was adorable and I got the idea off the budget101 facebook page a few months ago. I LOVE this place!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I make my own laundry detergent and fabric softener, make my own "convenience foods" like protests, biscuits etc, make my own jellies/jams from fruit in my back yard in the spring/summer. Also can veggies when in season and create my own frozen tv dinners (we buy what we can in bulk , cook up large batches and freeze individual servings)

    As of right now besides buying generic instead of name brand not much. I just found this site and am thinking about trying to make homemade laundry soap after I get paid next week. For sure need to save money in the laundry area.

    1. I make "Coney Island" sauce. My recipe has been handed down for generations, I have always been told that a Great-Great-Great Aunt would help in the making of the original "Coney Island" sauce. She was never to give the recipe out, but before she died from lung cancer she gave a jar of sauce along the recipe to her daughter. Before her daughter passed away she did the same as her mother and so on. The recipe has now been passed on to me. Someday, I will do the same and pass the recipe on to my daughter.

    2. Carpet Sprinkles.

    3. Canning Tomatoes, Green Beans and Corn

    Things I do to save money is cook almost everything from scratch. Bread, make butter, cookies. I freeze dough and make for later for convience.

    second is making my own laundry soap homemade.

    And third I make candles and use them for gifts and for the house to smell good. I save old wax and re use it. I also sell my candles for money to buy household items. I love your site and am very happy it always here for me to use.
