If you’re a new homeowner, you might be starting to feel like you can easily spend the cost of your mortgage each month just on hiring people to do upkeep. The lawn needs mowing, the toilet is overflowing, the gutters need cleaning, and that’s just the beginning. A myriad of problems can arise anytime when you own your own home. Not to mention, you’re sure to find lots of things you’d just like to have done. You’d like to have the shutters painted, the bathroom regrouted, and to have ceiling fans installed throughout the house. But constantly hiring handymen, plumbers, and carpenters to aid you with all these projects does get costly. That’s why so many young homeowners today are doing more and more projects themselves.

DIY

You can save a lot of money by taking on projects yourself. Not to mention, each small project you complete around the house leaves you with a knowhow that will make it even easier and quicker next time a similar problem arises. Plus, when you complete something yourself, rather than paying someone to do it for you, you’re left with a huge feeling of pride at a job well done.

So what are some easy projects to begin with? Start small. Don’t decide to rip out all the walls and start fresh if you’ve barely even picked up a hammer. What are some of the most pressing issues in your home? Start with those and begin by picking up some of the basic tools you’ll use constantly like a drill, a wire crimper, a hose, and a ladder. You can find lots of things you’ll need at the thediyoutlet.com or you can visit your local hardware store for ideas about necessities and easy projects to get started on, like clearing drains or gutters.

Saturdates are always something Jeff and I look forward to. Last week’s started off with Electrolux’s Delighful-E Yummy Kitchen Class. For someone who spends hours upon hours every week in the kitchen preparing for my family’s meal, I love to learn more to add variety to my usual kitchen prowess. Haha!

The Delightful-E Yummy Kitchen Class was jump started by Nutritionist Ms. Carmela Taob, who gave us valuable tips on how to pick the freshest produce, fish and meat from the market. It is the first step to guarantee a nutrient-packed meal for the family.  She also introduced the Electrolux NutriFresh™ refrigerator is equipped with NutriLight, a system of patented LED lights that helps improve and retain the vitamin content of your food by simulating sunlight. Talk about innovation right in the fridge to keep our food inside fresh longer.

As wifey and I were busy this morning tidying up the house (so we could have our Independence Day date later) while our little guy was out vacationing with his Ninong and Tita for their ID celebration getaway, I received this sweet treat for Father’s Day from Max’s Restaurant. Thank you so much, Max’s!
