Saving Money by DIY'ing

I’m all about being sustainable – I’m a firm believer in the fact that we, as a collective human species, were put on this planet to take care of it. So, with that mindset - I’m a lover of all things sustainable. However, I don’t know if you’ve noticed how expensive sustainable products are. Well, let me tell you – they’re expensive! Totally not cost effective especially when you’re trying your best to pay down debt!
