Does doing it yourself save you money? or is it the way to find yourself some expensive hobbies? Both are right.
But the movement seems to be gaining momentum as signaled by the opening of DIY suppliers Homesteaders Emporium
in Vancouver's Strathcona Neighbourhood where you can find what you need for canning, candles, and cheesemaking. Not all of these activites are affordable, unless you consider the cost part of your entertainment budget. But they can be fun, as fans of back yard chickens
can attest. It might take time to "break even" but savings can be found in preserving the bounty from your summer garden. Or if you want to start small, make your own lunch and see the savings add up!
