Making vs. Buying

Came across this bit on Slate that investigates the cost-effectiveness of making vs. buying various foods.  Bagels are cheaper (and apparently pretty easy) to make!  Who knew??  I did know that yogurt is a no-brainer when looking at cost-effectiveness, and taste too.  Since I'm hooked on the expensive greek stuff, I'm going to try making a batch.  And maybe a healthier version of Alton Brown's granola, if only because I adore him.
Jam seems too intense, though I'm sure delicious, I just don't eat enough of it anyway.  It wasn't in the article, but I have a kit for making ricotta and mozzarella, though I don't know if it'll become a regular occurrence...
What would you make instead of buying?
