What do you make now that you used to buy?
This year I want to use more things that are homemade so that I know what I am putting into on onto our bodies.
Things like anything canned, breads, washing powder, shampoo, toothpaste, yoghurt, make up, cleaners etc. I might even try making my own mince meat and sausages, cheeses and milks.
The thing I am probably going to find difficult is the convenience of all those ready made things.
What do you make instead of buying ready to use????

Pizza bases. I make a dough from Greek yogurt and self raising flour.
I also use vinegar to kill grass and weeds (make up a spray using vinegar, a dash of dish washing liquid and a bit of salt).

Vinegar and eucalyptus oil to clean my floors and most other hard surfaces, sundried tomatoes, pesto, pasta sauce, chicken kievs, stock and frozen chips (and the chips are way better than the store bought ones!).

Baby wipes.. cut paper towel roll in half and pour a mixture of vinegar, tea tree oil, lavender oil, natural body wash and hot water (about a cup) over the top to soak.. use the big huggies containers to store.

I make naan for our curries, soap nut liquid replaces all cleaning products, soap and shampoo, we use washers in place of toilet paper, make our own bread, grow our own Veges and fruit, compost everything ... That's some of it anyhow.
