Doing the renovations yourself to save some dough
Home ownership is a lot of work especially when it comes to maintaining your home or home renovations. You have to pick out your paint colours, figure out the “feel” that you house will have from top to bottom, upkeep the property, change filters, change bulbs, repair, build, replace….it is simply exhausting. If you are reading this blog, chances are you are interested in budgets and personal finance so you aren’t so loaded you can just buy your way through life. Even if you have a list of friends and family in the trades chances are you are going to have to fork out some cash at some point for some work at your house. This is where the Y/Why? comes in in DIY. There are so many things you can do with a bit of elbow grease, a bit of preparation and a bit of inspiration – so why not save some money. I’m going to focus on things that I feel you can do yourself without a degree in design or being a licensed contractor.
