With the current economic malaise continuing to strain household budgets, it’s no wonder that a growing number of people have decided to stretch their incomes by taking on more do-it-yourself tasks. As a result, thrifty folk from all walks of life are now boldly tackling complex and ambitious jobs that they’d never dream of handling in better times. Even so, DIY projects can be financially risky too.
The bottom line: Do-it-yourself projects can certainly help stretch your income — but they can also end up costing you a great deal more if the job is done incorrectly the first time around.
