Listen up, yogurt lovers: This protein-packed superfood doesn’t need to cost a fortune. Make it at home on the cheap by lining a strainer or colander with a coffee filter, filling with regular plain yogurt, and letting it sit overnight in the fridge. (Just remember to place something beneath to catch the liquid!) Voila! The same creamy treat at a fraction of the cost.

Have more coffee filters lying around? Use them as handy face wipes at the gym or on the trail. They even make great do-it-yourself tea bags! Read on for other creative uses for coffee filters.

The Takeaway: You don’t need to spend a fortune on delicious Greek yogurt. Make it at home by straining regular yogurt overnight through a coffee filter.
