The cost of living is increasing all the time but our wages are not increasing at the same rate. We’ve gotta find as many ways as we can to cut costs. One simple way you can do this is by making your own homemade spices and seasonings.
For many of us, groceries account for a huge chunk of our monthly budget. Small changes like this can really add up. Many of these homemade spices and seasoning recipes cost significantly less than purchasing a jar at the store.
Some of these recipes are pretty close to the same cost; however, that one-time cost makes significantly more. This will save you from having to buy those spices or seasonings again for a long time.
Making your own spices and seasonings at home is surprisings simple and can save you a ton of money. You can make a large batch of seasonings you use frequently like taco seasoning, for example.
I like to store mine in a small mason jar and then I have it on hand whenever I need it. If you don’t have any mason jars you can find them for around $5 at both WalMart and Amazon. You can also purchase clear, plastic spices containers for less than $1 a piece.
You can find an amazing deal on some perfect jars for your DIY homemade spices on Amazon. Ill link to them below if you want to check them out.
There this this simples DIY tutorial from Hometalk that shows you how to make container labels. You can easily scale this down to make perfect labels for your new spice jars.
For this DIY label project, all you need is some packaging tape and the ability to print on a regular plain white sheet of paper. Check out the video below.
