I was also planning to try some canning this fall once tomatoes hit rock bottom prices. I did plant 8 tomatoes in my garden but we had to abandon them since we discovered our new adopted cat was using the veggie garden as a litter box! We have plans to restore the soil come late fall though and keep her out next yr.

Heck yeah, and the Tightwad Gazette! Lots of good tips.

As for the original post, I have a hard time making my own mixes but maybe I will slowly regain that need to mix my own dry goods. My first thought is where would I store all those jars?

But I would certainly love to learn how to make my own cleaning supplies. I have asthma and most of what's out there sends me straight to my inhaler because the chemicals are so strong.

Also jars you use year after year. So an initial investment is all you take.
I find it cheaper to can many things than to buy them at the store. Especially if you grow your own ( which we do).

You can also find canning jars at thrift stores and yard sales, for a dime or a quarter.

The only ingredients you buy from the store are things like pectin, sugar and vinegar, all of which you can buy in bulk and isn't as costly as you would think.

And like other's have mentioned, it's about the QUALITY of the food, and the wholesome nature about it. No dyes, no GMO's, no HCFC, just good stuff.

I made homemade cereal this weekend! Bran flakes and homemade "Cracklin oat bran".

I'm trying to avoid non-organic/GMOs/refined sugar and have also read that the extrusion process used to make boxed cereal removes a lot of nutrients. Not sure how true that is as I only found mention of it on a few blogs but the other reasons are enough for me.
