Frugal Home Improvements

With spring around the corner we all can’t help but get excited for home improvements or upgrades. I know we have tons on our mind of what we want to do! Set goals based on importance as well as budget. Don’t do something if it is outside of budget. If it is outside of budget for some reason but it needs to be done, then be frugal. Do what you can yourself and outsource the rest, or take your time since we know you are a busy mama.

The first thing we have decided to do is paint our doors. Currently all our indoor doors are wooden and it drives me nuts!!! It’s so outdated. We washed the doors down first then decided to paint them.  Face it too, doors aren’t cheap! My husband decided it was best to paint them white. After searching for the perfect white paint that would hold over we’ll enough, the doors became perfect!!

The second thing we did was get an estimate for our kitchen flooring. It is just outdated and needs to match our black splash. We knew that we weren’t going to pay double what it costs for the materials. All of our quotes came back WAY high so what did we do?? We had my husband do it on the weekend and have his buddies over… We offered to pay them in beer and pizza, it worked! We saved TONS of money this way.

The third thing we did was spring cleaning. This is kind of like a duh moment. This might not be frugal but we knew that we had to clean and we weren’t going to outsource this. We made sure to make a list of things that needed to be done. We have been living in the house for six months now and never really fully did a deep cleaning so we knew that this was a must. Here is a list of things that we decided to do for our ’spring’ cleaning.

—Clean the windows

—Clean behind furniture

—Wipe down the walls

—Paint the walls

—Wipe down the trim

—Wipe down all appliances

—Clean inside all appliances
