100 More things you can make yourself

By  | 

My last list of 100 things you can make yourself received mixed reviews. Many were quick to point out that doing it yourself doesn't necessarily mean doing it cheaper. Others felt some of the items on the list, such as maple syrup or bacon, were flat out ridiculous. Perhaps they were. Do take these lists in the spirit in which they were intended, to show you how much you can do on your own. Sure, some things take a lot of work, while others can be whipped up in seconds. Some things, such as the aforementioned bacon, no one will want to make. The point is you can do anything if you put your mind to it, rather than relying on convenience. I think we tend to follow the quickest way out, without realizing how rewarding it is to do things on our own. Though I will try and list things that are more doable this time around, please enter this with an open mind.
