40 Things You Should Stop Buying and Start making!

Sure, you can go to the store and buy pretty much everything. Convenience is a great thing, but often when it comes to processed food, cleaning/laundry and health/beauty products, this convenience comes at a cost, and I am not just talking about the financial cost, I am also talking about the health cost…  Here is a huge list of things you should be making rather than buying, including art and craft materials, food and drink products, cleaning products and health and beauty products. How much money could you save with this list?
