Make Your Own: An A to Z List of Ideas

I’ve been giving myself a bit of blogging break this month by not publishing any new recipes and instead looking back at some of my previous content.  Kind of like they do on TV – I’m giving you a few summer reruns 🙂

A couple weeks ago I began with my annual DIY For Dummies list, a list of some of my past recipes that you can make with only two ingredients.  That was followed by a list of 10 cleaners you can stop buying and start making, a gathering of several of my favorite homemade cleaners recipes.

And this week, as I was looking back at all the blog posts I’ve written over the past six years, I was reminded again that there’s lots of good stuff in my archives.  In fact, I’ve got everything from A to Z!

Want to make more of your own household supplies but don't know how to get started?  Here's an A to Z list of homemade alternatives to inspire you!

So today that’s what you’re getting . . . an A to Z List of “Make Your Own” ideas.

Once before I did an A to Z list of ideas, but enough time has gone by that sure enough, I could find enough goodies to make another list. We’re beginning with Applesauce and ending with Zesty Cheese Wafers, with ideas for cleaning, crafting, and copycats in between.

I hope you found a few inspiring projects to try on this list, and hopefully in a few years I’ll have enough new ideas for yet another A to Z list!
