One of the basic concepts I’m sure we all understand is that little things add up to bigger things. One of these collections of little things that I’ve become good at over the years is doing things myself. Where before I might call someone to fix something, I’m quite likely to get it done on my own now.
This saves money, sure. It also has other advantages.
Repairing things around the house is a small, subtle money leakage. It’s also a frustration and a dependency that you can – to a large extent – manage out of your life.
