This weekend my husband told me he’s “out” of coffee creamer. Can I just tell you this is one of my biggest pet peeves! Don’t tell me the day you need something that you need it… give me a warning, like “hey, I’ve only got a few days left of creamer,” for example. But I guess I shouldn’t complain, after 3 years of marriage I’ve at least gotten him to put the toilet seat down 90% of the time. (Insert round of applause for not falling bare bottomed into the toilet, in the middle of the night, ever again here!)
Well wouldn’t deja-vu have it when, while browsing Pinterest this morning, I come across a post from Cookin’ With Super Pickle on creating your own coffee creamer! So today it’s fair to say I’m excited for many reasons:
- My husband no longer needs coffee creamer
- This helps me continue towards my goal to eat down our pantry this month while taking the Pantry Challenge
- I get to use a can of sweetened condensed milk that I purchased with a coupon in 2012 that was set to expire this winter
- And last, but not least, since the ingredients were already in our cupboards, his coffee creamer is now FREE!
Since I’m not the coffee drinker in this family you’ll have to wait for the results of this DIY experiment until tomorrow morning! While you’re waiting tell us about a recent DIY project you’ve completed in the comments below.
Results Update: Hubby says it tastes great – a little sweeter than normal – but he just uses a bit less & it balances right out. That means my FREE Coffee Creamer is a success!
