When I’m looking to cut expenses, one of the things that I love to do is to take a look at what I can stop buying and make myself. It’s actually dual purpose since homemade products typically taste better or work better than most of the commercial products you’ll find. We (meaning “we” as a society) have been conditioned to think that we need to buy processed foods and harsh chemicals in order to live a good life, but honestly? That couldn’t be farther from the truth. Instead, I like to make it myself and not only save myself big but keep us a bit healthier too!
When you first start making your own products, it can be super confusing on where to start and if you’re not careful, you can end up with a bad recipe and a big ol’, size of Texas mess! That’s okay! Lucky for you? I happen to have a few awesome-tastic links for you! Take a look at my favorite 42 homemade items below and give them a shot! I bet you’ll never pay for them again after you do!
