When I see certain clothes and items now, one of my first thought is "I can SO make that for less"! But sometimes, I just can't justify making certain things when I can buy them so cheap! IKEA is my greatest example. I hear a lot of good and bad things about IKEA. Personally everything I have gotten there has been great and way better quality than I would expect for the price. My nephew loves playing with the grocery cart and vegetables we have at my house so I thought "oh I could make him some out of felt.". Then I went to IKEA. All of these are only 7.99 each!
There is no way I could make them for that, especially considering the time which would go into it. So, I guess...I will still have to resort to buying certain things, even though I COULD make it. :)
