DIY - SAVE MONEY BY MAKING IT YOURSELF

There are so many things that can be made from scratch that'll save you money. But... listen... I'm not talking about baking your own bread (because that takes too long, or making your own mascara (yes that's a thing), or even making your own ice cream (it's more expensive to make it, than to buy it!) Nope. The recipes you'll find here are all:
1. Quicker to make than running up to the store to buy it (so you won't boil anything to make liquid laundry soap)
2. Cheaper to make than to buy.
