2. Do the work yourself- Doing the work yourself can help you save on labor costs. Obviously time is money and your time is valuable, but if you have some free time you can reduce labor costs. If you need skilled labor (carpenters, electricians, plumbers), that is where you want to spend your money.

3. Don’t buy new- If you are updating appliances, etc. look at a discount warehouse or floor models from hardware stores. These appliances are new, but they might have a small blemish that has reduced the price. This can be a great way to save money.

4. Redo cabinet doors- Often time’s people want to change their cabinets, but just look at changing the doors, or even just painting the doors. This will save you money, as ripping down cabinets, buying new ones and getting them installed is an expensive project.

5. Accessorize- Sometimes a room’s appearance can be redone with minimal work. Look to accessorize the room, by adding pillows, throws, candles, etc. This can help give your room a fresh new look with minimal effort.

6. Buy new hardware- You can easily spruce up your house by replacing outlet covers, cabinet knobs, etc. This is a cheap way to add some class to your home, while giving it a fresh clean look.

7. Plants- Add plants to your home. A little greenery can go a long way in adding ‘life’ to your home!
