Combine lemon juice and olive oil to make a natural furniture polish. It'll be about half the price of some name brand creams.
Use a few drops of Tabasco sauce to numb a toothache. You'll save as much as $5 and get more than double the amount of a tooth medicine.
Polish silver, brass and copper with ketchup. Just mix it with water and rub it on. A 32-ounce bottle costs less than $3.
