The basic DIY projects that people can do to make their homes a lot more functional are not things which have to be done ‘all at one time’. The first thing that anybody can do is to go ‘one by one’ in the bathroom. Bathroom sinks and toilets, shower heads and other accessories are not so expensive. You can probably afford them if you are on a weekly pay-check. Of course, if you own the home your new bathroom is going to really improve your resale value far above the costs after just a few months of work. Kitchens are the same. Another easy tip is for doors because doors are not as clumsy as windows. Even if you can’t afford to change the door, changing the hinges will make an old door more functional. The main idea behind basic DIY projects is that they can be done continuously. You can be making small changes to improve your home every week. It doesn’t have to be a huge project; just a 60 minute mini project, every week.
