Family Balance Sheet

There are two schools of thought when hiring someone else to do a task that you are capable of: (1) you’re saving yourself time and therefore you can be productive in other areas or (2) you can do the task yourself and keep the money to yourself. Today’s challenge: Do-It-Yourself & Save. As much as I long for a house cleaner, it’s just not in our budget at this time, so our house gets cleaned by me.

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

Most homes do have cavities to slow it down; however, issues can arise with the insulation. You’ll have to be prepared to tear down drywall, add insulation yourself and replace said drywall. Although it may cost you more money than doing it yourself, by insulating your home right the first time it will save you more money over the long run. It shouldn’t come as any real surprise, but doors and windows let out a lot of heat.

Things I’ve Learned During 30 + Years of Home Ownership

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

After all, both Mom and Dad had been do-it-yourselfers and had trained me up to work right alongside them. As a child and teen, I painted (inside and out), mowed and trimmed, punched holes in concrete to install decorate iron railings, worked with hand and power tools and helped my parents do everything from putting up a garage to putting up storm windows. Know what you are getting into with home ownership – it may not be cheaper than renting!

DIY - Washing Machine Repair

Family Balance Sheet

Do you ever hear 'cha-ching' in your head? We called Sears to order the part and were told we could pick it up on Monday and the cost was $40. It's kind of a daunting task to take apart your washing machine. I never knew what lurked in the under-belly of the machine; it's pretty grimy. When my husband got home from work on Monday, we replaced the part, cleaned up the machine and turned it on. It drained right away.

How is Your Vacation Rental Doing?

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

It seemed reasonable to devote a greater portion to real estate, in order to further diversify our portfolio. We planned to rent out the property and thought it would rent quite a few days of the year. Property values had risen considerably in our married lifetime and we thought they would continue to do so.
