One of the simplest ways to save money is to do things for yourself. From DIY home improvement to frozen dinners to clothing projects, homemade is inexpensive and often better. Here are a few simple recipes to get you started:
Baby Food: You’ll have the added advantage of knowing exactly what is in your baby’s food. Cook fruits and vegetables, then puree as needed, adding water if necessary. Divide and freeze prepared food for storage. There are websites more fully dedicated to the process and recipes.
Baby Wipes: Homemade baby wipes are inexpensive, especially if you are cloth diapering. Simply combine 1 cup water, 2 tablespoons baby oil and 2 tablespoons baby wash in a container. You can use paper towels or baby washcloths for higher, greener savings.
