I like making stuff myself, or fixing stuff that's broken, rather than buying ready made stuff or new stuff. That includes food, clothes, stuff for the house, accessories, whatever. I cook, knit, crochet, sew, and I've just started trying to grow some of my own vegetables! This site was a great find because it seems like anything I want to make I just search for and there's a recipe. I hate throwing stuff away (reduce, reuse & recycle!), surprise salt in food and pushy vegetarians.
