For a recipe that called for buttermilk, I used the old lemon juice in fresh milk trick. Worked well, and I saved the $4.49 cost of a can of buttermilk powder.
For another recipe that called for a pumpkin pie spice mix, I hit my favorite online recipe site and figured out how make my own, using spices already in my pantry. Saved $3+ by not buying a premixed tin.
Found out that using leftover spinach instead of cabbage in a soup recipe worked just as well.
I did strike out on substituting powdered milk for a recipe to avoid making a special trip to buy fresh milk. Oh, well, at least the milk was on markdown.
