22. If You Can't Afford To Own Something, Learn To Make It From Scratch

I wanted an embroidered dress, so I learned to embroider

Obviously this isn't one that works for everbody, but it's worked out pretty well for me before, it's actually one of the reasons I learned to sew in the first place,
and then once I got good at sewing I taught myself other skills, that way I could still have pretty things when I didn't have a lot of money to spend. Even now when
I am not in such a bad financial situation I still tend to prefer to make things where I can as I'm more likely to end up with exactly what I want and a good and 
flattering fit.
