I have spent a lot of time shopping around for compost bins online and in stores. They can be pricey, and I have a hard time paying a lot of money for something that has the sole purpose of holding old scraps of food to turn them into fertilizer.
Recently, I decided to do some research on how to make a compost bin. A surprising number of great ideas and even video tutorials popped up on my first Google search! There are definitely ways to make your own compost bin from materials like steel drums, garbage cans, or if you are super handy, you can even build one from wood scraps and aluminum siding.
I think making a compost bin is probably more economical than buying one.
Do you have a compost pile or bin? If you have a bin, did you make it yourself or buy it?
