Making your own seasoning mixes allows you to tailor them to your tastes. It also gives you control over the quality and saves you a few pennies. When I make my own seasoning mixes, I am able to save even more money by using herbs that I have grown and dried myself. It is still early enough in the season for you to start an herb garden for yourself.
You can make Italian Seasoning Mix with herbs commonly found in your pantry.

Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months. I reuse spice jars to store my spice mixes.
