The Importance Of a D.I.Y

Many individuals believe that D.I.Ys are pointless and a waste of time. They mostly have the mindset of going to the store and buying any items they need instead of using their everyday resources to create a much cheaper replica

. The outcome of the item is also a major input in why people don’t make D.I.Ys. Some people believe that remaking an item they want will turn out to look cheap or crappy. These people would rather go out and buy the item for full price instead of using their everyday resources throughout their homes.


This seems to happen because people believe that fully priced items are more trustworthy and durable. The cost of an item usually ensures the quality of it as well. People would rather spend more money to make sure that their item works then to create the same item for a way cheaper price that would work the same.

Believing that their store bought items will also last them longer, people tend to take little interest in D.I.Ys.



However I believe that D.I.Ys are a great way to save money. Not only does it save you a trip to the store it also acts as a great way to create storage. People think that making your own items won’t turn out as great as store bought items.

D.I.Ys can save you money

The truth is, you can actually make a D.I.Y look more expensive than an actual store item. It only takes the right amount of time and effort. You’ll also save a lot of money by reusing things from around your house. For example a water bottle could act as a flowerpot.



But I know that people feel strongly against using things that may or may not work. we are all guilty of having the thought of “I don’t know how this is going to turn out and I don’t want to waste my time so I’m not going to try this.”

On top of that we don’t want to accidentally star a fire or create something toxic that could be dangerous to both you or your surroundings. allergic reactions are also common when making bath bombs or skin care treatments.

Even so I believe that D.I.Ys are an overall great way to have fun. Not only do you have to be basic and have the same design as everyone else around you. You could be unique and try out any different color or design you wish to have.

Everything you make is one of a kind and an result of your creativity. D.I.Ys are a great way to give you the artistic ability you’ve been searching for. Not only are they simple to make. They also come into great use throughout your house or anywhere else you’s like to place them.
