Most DIY concentrates on home repairs, but think of what was done in years past, making it yourself not only saves money, but give you more control over what products you use in your daily life
Make it yourself – when in high school many years ago, I wanted designer clothes. You may remember the late 70’s and early 80’s years of Dallas where everyone dressed up. I was able to achieve these same designer styles by sewing my own clothes with designer patterns and shopping for sales. This skill also came in very handy years later when I was an Army wife and needed a wardrobe of formal dresses. I was able to fit this need within my budget.
Think of the skills you have (or would like to have). These skills can be learned or further enhanced through resources available to us on the internet. We don’t have to rely on the skills our parents had, we can learn what we can from them and then reach out to discover other skills we may enjoy having. The possibilities are endless.
