It seems the more we advance, the more stuff is done for us. I don’t mind letting someone else do all the work for me — the problem is of course, that convenience is expensive and we’re getting really lazy. I started thinking about all the things we can make ourselves if we put forth a little effort and found lots of cool instructions online. My fellow cheapskates, I give you 100 things you can make yourself.
The list contains a lot of food items, such as:
- How to make bacon
- Brewing root beer and ginger ale
- Oven-fried potato chips (these look awesome and easy)
- Mmmmm… donuts
There’s more on this list than just food, though. Here are some more crafty projects:
- Make your own book
- Homemade laundry detergent
- How to make incense
- Homemade paper
- Make and use a pinhole camera
- Build bookshelves or a tree fort
- Make your own kite
These are just a handful of the projects Deborah has collated. What are you waiting for? If you’re looking for a fun way to kill some time, head on over to find something you can make yourself!
