Avoid Calling Out The Handyman
When you own your own home, things can and will go wrong. Our first instinct is often to hire somebody and get them to sort out the problem. But that can often end up being very expensive and unnecessary.
Suppose, for instance, you’ve got a blocked drain. Instead of calling out contractors, look for things you can try to unblock a drain first that are much less expensive. The same applies for if you’ve got a problem with your guttering or if the caulking in your shower is peeling away from the wall. Home remedies often work just fine in these circumstances, without having to pay out money for time and labor.
Lose Bad Habits
Your home environment can be your worst enemy if you are trying to quit smoking or drinking. There’s nothing worse than knowing you’ve got boxes of ciggies in the cupboards. Or you’re tempted by cheesecakes and chocolate in the fridge. These temptations test willpower and are usually hard for good-meaning people to resist.
