100daysrepairCar and home repairs are some of the biggest money sinks in the world. We pay hundreds of dollars for professionals to do easy repairs that only take a few minutes. Putting a little bit of time into learning how to do basic repairs on your car and in your home can save you boatloads of money in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

If you want to get started doing your own repairs, consider investing in a thorough home/car repair book. You should only have to spend $20 to $30 on a book that covers everything you’ll need to know. Compare that to the cost of hiring a plumber even once!

Unless you’re naturally very handy, you’ll probably want to stick to simple repairs on your own. Save the big jobs for the professionals. For some people, DIY repair is not an option. In that case, look around your group of family and friends. Anyone who can do simple home and car repairs would likely be willing to do them for you for a small fee. It’s a win-win situation: you spend less than you would hiring a professional, and they earn a little bit of extra money!
