With the cost of everything from clothing, to pasta, to mouthwash on the rise, it’s a good time to look at the products you buy often to see if you can make them yourself. It could seem daunting, but some things are actually really simple to make. Check out these common items that you can make at home to save BIG!

Fab Frugal Note: Some items may cost a little more to get started because you will need to purchase ingredients that you might not already have on hand. The key is to calculate your savings in the long run. Often these ingredients will last for a long time and make several batches, saving you a lot of money.


Distilled water, Xylitol, pure Peppermint Essential Oil, and Tea Tree Oil are all you need to make your own mouthwash. Check out this easy recipe HERE.
