Budget Boot Camp Challenge #9~Do It Yourself

This weeks Budget Boot Camp Challenge was do it yourself.  If you know me at all you know I don't do anything myself I have a guy for everything.  So this was a real challenge for me!  Beth gave us some great ideas for ways to do it yourself.  Clair has a whole youtube video series on going green and saving green.  How clever right? 
After reading Beth and Clairs suggestions I realized I wasn't THAT bad and I do somethings myself.  I do make my own cinnamon rolls from scratch--  You can  see that venture on my youtube video.   So I wouldn't call this challenge a complete fail for me because I am definitely willing to try new things especially if I can save money in the process.  Just wish me LUCK!
 I loved Clair's video so much about using an avocado as a face mask instead of spending a fortune on expensive beauty treatments I wanted to share.  I didn't try it yet but avocados are on sale this week so I am going to try it out tomorrow ( I was going to the store today but my hubby accidentally took my wallet to work with him and NO it is not because I spend too much money haha!)  So enjoy this video and depending on how much I like the avocado facial I may do a video of my own.  You just never know about me!

Just a quick update I have noticed a significant difference in our monthly budget.  I am thrilled at all the savings!  To see all the things I am doing to get my personal budget in shape read these Budget Boot Camp posts.  It is not too late to get your budget in shape!
