Anyone out there love to DIY? (DIY=do it yourself) It is great for saving money, sometimes, on labor! Notice I said SOMETIMES! That is because, sometimes it is just too hard and it would have been easier to just pay someone else to do the job, and sometimes it might even cost you more to DIY. For the most part, if you love projects, you can do it yourself and save money. In our household, we do as much DIYing as we possibly can. Landscaping, Painting (inside and out), Repairs, Building things (i.e. sandbox, toy box, garden bed box, lots of boxes! LOL).
You get the picture, and deep down, I do feel we saved "big time" on those items.
To help you get started, I would like to point out a great blog from AOL's/HGTV's very own Eric Stromer! From there you can get all kinds of tips and tricks of the trade, and even gain ideas on what you can do next in your home, and potentially save money and best of all...Have Fun!
