Save money with do-it-yourself home projects.

mommylibrarian Feb 22, 2012

Every project is something you can tackle. (One Exception* Unless you have easy access to your roof and the pitch is gentle, I would not particularly advise the roofing projects.)
There is a material list, and a detailed outline of how to address simple tasks that will make a big difference. Have a notepad with you because you will want to make a hardware store list as you read this.
