Save money, lose weight, be healthy, reduce waste and lessen your environmental impact…

Five good reasons to learn how to MAKE your own cleaning products and cosmetics.

Imagine if everyone picked up on these recipes, the positive impact would be phenomenal personally and collectively. 

 I’d love to see District Councils all over New Zealand get behind their communities and help these recipes find the way into towns and cities New Zealand-wide and beyond.  If everyone benefitted from the simple concept of MAKE-ing their own toothpaste, dishwash, laundry powder, all purpose cleaner etc, as much as I have it would be so positive.

Save money and lose weight are probably on most people’s wish list and here’s how to do it.  Slash your grocery budget.  Limit your spend and stick to the limit.  You will be surprised at what you can do without, and you will be surprised at how quickly the savings pile up.  Your whole approach to grocery shopping changes – maybe not overnight but very, very quickly.  I am ashamed of what I used to buy and feed my family.  It was way over priced, unhealthy and wasteful. I was teaching my children to be excessive and putting them on the road to weight and health problems and financial misery.

My $100 a week grocery budget was hard to maintain in the beginning. When I started making my own laundry powder, toothpaste, moisturisers etc that was when the whole budget turned around.  It became so easy to live on the tight budget I shortened the purse strings to $75 a week just for a challenge.  That has seen us adopt a mainly vegetarian diet which is turning out to be a bonus in itself.  We planted our own vege garden the other day, so will keep you posted on how that goes.  So far so good.

So if you have a MAKE franchisee in your area book in for a lesson.  It’s quick and easy to learn – anyone can do it.  Tell your friends.  If you don’t have classes locally order the recipes and books on-line and have a go at home.  I can support you by phone or e-mail.  You will love it so much you will want to become a franchisee yourself.
