A reader sent me a link to an article at the This Old House website. It’s all about saving some serious money by doing things yourself. A few things cost a little to do, others don’t cost anything but a little bit of your time. Surprisingly, we were already doing a few things on the list.
It’s nicely organized by the amount of money you can save ($50 to $500) so you can start there or read the entire article.
One that we currently do is #3 – we close closet doors. Both get really cold since they are along exterior walls. Sure, our clothes are a little chilly, but they warm up quickly once you put them on and it helps wake you up in the morning 😉
You can read the full article here. Thanks Dawn for the tip!
That is one huge list. Anything that can be done around the house to help pinch some pennies is all right in my book. Thanks for the link.
I see a few we do already. I am going to need to give it a good look over and see if there are more great tips in there.
Thanks for the article.
Although, this is the first time I’m posting a comment, your blog had inspired me to start a blog as a means towards hacking away my debt.
I have a long way to go, but am committed to getting there.
Thanks for posting this. I was able to fix our insinkerator after following the video and instructions on thisoldhouse website.
