If we are talking about home made being a way of thinking, then we need to start with what we already have. My family doesn't want to constantly be buying new items to cram into our house, but of course our needs are constantly changing. But before I buy anything, I try very hard to use something that we already have. Sometimes it's merely a container that needs to be used for a different purpose, and sometimes it's an item that requires modification. Here's a good example:
1. I cut the strap off of the bag.
After I tried it on her, I used my sewing machine to more securely attach the top of the straps to the bag.
What is one thing you have at home that can be repurposed and given new life? All it really requires is a different way of thinking. No special skills required, just a little brainpower.
