Ingredient substitutions that work?

Whenever I approach a new recipe, I try to see what ingredients I can use and get away with substituting so I can save money and not be forced to go to the store. Whether it's frugality or laziness, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Anyone have some tried substitutions that they know they can get away with?
