Many Americans are struggling financially, but they’re finding new ways to get what they want, using what they already have. The Maker Movement, or do-it-yourself movement, is a trend that's becoming more and more popular as Americans continue to share with each other their own personal tips and ideas for cheap and easy do-it-yourself projects. Various resources are popping up everywhere that are teaching people new skills and ways to "make your own" whatever!
