One of the basic building blocks of frugality, that I’m sure we all understand, is that little things add up to bigger things. One of these 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. More than you might think. It also has other advantages.
Repairing things around the house is a small, contant, subtle money leakage. It’s also a frustration and a dependency that you can – to a large extent – manage out of your life.
