If it were only me, I'd put 40 percent of my income in the bank and spend only the 60 percent. But then again, I have a growing family and a college student. The expenses are getting bigger and sometimes it's tough to make ends meet. You can do so much when you have savings in the bank and this ensures you have something in cases of emergency. You'll never know when a pipe will break or when a roof needs replacement. It feels so much better when you know you have money to spend for this. But what if you don't?
Well, don't despair because most of these things, you can do on your own. There are websites that offers do-it-yourself home repairs. All you need to do is prepare the materials you will be needing for the repair and follow the instructions. These are mostly step by step guides that are easy to understand and follow so you don't really have to worry about failing on the project.
If you have been putting off home repairs because you don't have the budget for it, try DIY Repair. You'll be amazed at how you can do things that you never imagined you can do.
