Why DIY Projects are so Popular

The hubby and I tend to listen to podcasts about a variety of things and one of our favorites is Stuff Mom

Well the one we were just listening to and have not yet finished is about getting back to basics, domestic things such as knitting, canning, and creating things with their hands.

Well here is my stance on why DIY Projects are so Popular. Yes we are getting back to basics but I think it has more to do with consumer not being able to afford processed and time saver products as we all use to just 10-15 years ago.

Now there is more coupon usage and everyone is cutting back on spending and finding ways to save and if that means by making your own laundry soap to growing your own vegetables to raising your own chickens then that is what we will do.

DIY projects have been a HUGE part of my entire life. My Mother and sister are crafters and have been creating for over 36yrs so this is not new to my family but with the help of Instagram and Pinterest it has become a HUGE deal in the main stream life of almost everyone.

Are you a Pinner or are you a Pin Doer? Are you doing DIY projects out of necessity or is it more of a hobby?

Do you have any take on why DIY projects are becoming popular and you’d like to share?

Here are some of the DIY Projects I or my team have done.
