We have recently had the conversation on Facebook about what our readers Do It Yourself?? Here are a list of great DIY things, to help cut costs back at your house!!
-If you have boys/men in your house that don't mind an all one length hair cut, then buy yourself a pair of clippers and DIY!
-Stop paying a maintenance person to cut your grass! That's a huge expense and it's very gratifying to do it yourself and see how nice it looks once your done!
-Take a class to learn how to do things. You might have to pay to learn them....but remember you will no longer have to pay someone else to do it for you, and in turn save those dollars!!
-Do free or cheap outings! Having a family picnic at the city park is always fun for everyone, and it's gratifying as a parent!
-Learn to sew! Make your own curtains, tablecloths, clothes and so on. It's much cheaper and you get what you want this way!
-If you have items for sale, instead of putting an ad in the paper.....try networking first. Most of the time when you advertise through social networking you can get a better response and strangers don't have your information by doing this! Or you can just do a good old fashioned yard sale!!
-Make your own food items from scratch.....examples: bread, pasta sauce, muffins, cakes etc.
-Plant your own garden so you have your own produce right in your back yard!
-If there is someone in your family that likes to hunt, take advantage of that and cook with that meat! There are a lot of recipes to help with the gamy taste.
-You or your partner start changing your own oil in your vehicle(s).
These are just a few things you can do, so feel free to leave your comments on how you help save your family money by Doing It Yourself!
