A lot of people nowadays are getting creative with their own thing, from making their own mug, to cell phone holders and many more. You can usually find these on the internet with step by step procedures on how to do it without a hitch. It is fun and you can customize it all you want so it’s pretty original and no one can find that design anywhere else. There is so much more in doing DIY aside from budgeting and the fact that you get to pour your creative energy on it.
If you are very handy and know how to use tools, then it is a big plus! If you know how to follow instructions and do everything correctly, then you can be the DIY King/Queen. A very big WIN for you since you can save so much. You only need to buy the things that are cheap or stuff you have been hiding in your closet for a long while.
Helping the world through Recycling
Not only are you being creative and budgeting your money, but you’re also recycling things that you thought you should’ve thrown away months ago. It is especially helpful if you use everything that you can without buying. But no one can blame you if you need to buy some stuff. Recycling is one of the best way to help the Earth, by using it again and again, we’re saving our planet’s natural resources.
Being Relationship Friendly
By saving more money through DIY’s, you can share it with your significant other and your family. It is great to know that you can keep track with what you’re spending and spend your money in more important things like food, etc. Being able to save is the best feeling ever for anyone who has to budget everything especially college students, but having a family is a bit expensive, too. So this is a great way to teach and encourage your kids about the pros of saving.
DIY can be time consuming though if you want to save
If you don’t know how to manage your time, then you can have a hard time and stress out especially if you are in need of help. This is one area where relying a little on technology can help. With the use of technology you have your budget in your pocket 24-7 and can be in constant communication with your spending each month. A DIY budget, on the other hand, requires you to take a few additional steps to make sure your spending is in line with your budget. So you have a lot of processes to go through if you want to be religious in cutting down you spending each month.
Being able to make sure that you are helping in saving the planet and at the same time keeping money in your pocket is not that easy especially if you run out of ideas to make. Sure there are a lot of available ideas on the internet but the question is, are you going to make use of it? Are you really going to need it? It’s not with the “ifs” but with the “whys”.
