– – The Challenge – –
Why? We all know that usually homemade and doing it yourself saves you money! But, what should we do ourselves? That really depends on you and your skills and talents, but almost everything you pay for, you can save money doing at home by yourself.
What I Do Myself –
- Make my own baked goods (bread, hot dog buns, cinnamon rolls, pita pockets, and more!)
- Makes store bought meals or products at home (hot pockets, granola, barbecue sauce, and more!)
- Teach myself to do many home improvement projects from installing a new garbage disposal to erecting my kids’ million piece swing set
- Make my own cleaning products with simple ingredients
- Sew hairbows, designer flip flops, and more for the children and myself
What Clair Does Herself –
- Makes her own cleaning products (laundry soap or dishwasher soap)
- Makes beauty products to pamper herself
- Makes her own liquid hand soap
- Cooks at home and enjoys homemade baked goods too!
