Home Depot routinely offers workshops and classes to teach you how-to do various home repair projects. On January 14 they are offering a Do-It-Herself workshop, obviously targeted to women, that will teach you simple ways to update your bathroom yourself. It’s a free class, but pre-registration is required (click here to register).
I might attend this one, because making a few changes in my bathroom would significantly increase my satisfaction with current house and help take away an itch to move. If I scratched that itch to move by actually moving, do you know how much that would cost? A lot. I’m sure I’d pick a bigger and more expensive house (our two-bedroom townhouse is pretty cheap), plus I’d want some new rugs, lamps and furniture, we’d have to mow and snowplow ourselves, which means buying more stuff. All in all, I think I’d get a pretty good return on my time investment with this workshop, huh? :)
Your turn: What relatively low-cost (relative to the cost of moving) things have you done to increase your satisfaction with your house?
