When it comes to anything around the home, you can call us a family of DIYers, especially Hubby although I'm not afraid to use a hammer from time to time. 

From fixing small appliances that break down to fixing the kids toys and the family car, he will fix it himself before hiring someone to do it on most things. 

It's rewarding to fix it yourself, there's this sense of pride once the job is done knowing you did. Plus, you're saving yourself time and money not having to hire someone to do a simple task you can totally do yourself or spending the money to replace something that you can fix yourself. Besides, you have the best back-up on any DIY project.
