Make (almost) everything
You can find almost anything on a store shelf these days, but when you go green and make things yourself, you can actually save a lot of green. Here are just a few things you can DIY:
Beer and wine: Alcohol can be expensive, but we have DIY beer and wine recipes that will have you bottling your own booze in no time.
Cosmetics: When you make your own lotions, perfumes and soaps, you're not only saving money, you're also avoiding all the chemicals found in most store-bought brands.
Cleaning supplies: You probably have numerous bottles of cleaning agents stored under your sink, but with just a few simple ingredients you can DIY and declutter.
Toys and gifts: Sometimes the simplest toys are the ones that entertain children for hours, and personal homemade gifts are often more appreciated than generic store-bought ones.
