Goodness, making blankets would require a lot of time, energy and focus!

Save on coffee as I rarely buy it out.

Tea (name brand as opposed to store brand, etc.)?

raised beds
A very specific gardening type question!  Save as I don't garden.  Hubby would if we had actual space to do it, but I don't know anything about raised beds.

Shampoo and conditioner (sure it has been asked before, but I'll ask it anyway).

Buy. Making shampoo is a little too hippie-ish for me. And no-poo isn't for me, either.

Iced tea.
