Top 2 Tuesday-Helpful TIPS

This week's Top 2 Tuesday over at The Undomestic Momma is fun because it is so broad that I think the responses will all be so different!! The topic is Top 2 Tips on money saving, beauty, DIY, cooking, cleaning, blogging, shopping, etc.

1. My first tip is a DIY tip. When you go shopping for something that you need in your house/apartment go to the expensive/fancy stores that you would LOVE to buy the item from and figure out how you can do it yourself. Never spend top dollar on an item when you could DIY it for cheaper! I recently did a post about a $10-15 pencil/pen cup that I wanted for my hubby's office, but instead I DIYed it!

It is also a great idea to find a DIY blog that can give you ideas too!! Here are some of my favorites:
-Casa Sugar
-Young House Love

2. My second tip is a cleaning tip. It is kind of ironic that I am writing a tip about this since I have yet to try it, but.....I think that everyone should try to make their own cleaning products. I promise that I will be trying this as my current cleaning products empty out. I have been researching this topic a lot lately, and I think it is a very interesting idea because it is not only green but also money-saving!! So, stay tuned for a post in the future about this exciting experiment!!


Here are some blogs that I have found about making your own cleaning products:

-Passionate Homemaking
-Making Chicken Salad
(This site also has the cute labels in the above picture that you can print out for your homemade products!!)

Happy Blogging!
