It’s brilliant! In this case a picture is worth a thousand words. I love that you are posting more often. Thank you. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Love this, except when it comes to groceries and um, underwear. Wonderful illustration.

I love this. I think Make should have a little asteric. It belongs that high on the list if you are using virgin materials. If you can make something new out of stuff you already have, (for example I made a bathmat out of old t-shirts) then it goes nearer the bottom.

I would consider making something out of things you already own as “Use What You Have”. Repurposing something you already own is the best way to be frugal. I am not particularly creative so I always get excited when I manage to repurpose something,

I agree. There should be two levels, “make with stuff you already have” and “make with stuff you have to buy”.

Brilliant! I’m sharing.
