Frugal for Life: Home Repair Ideas

Frugal for Life: Home Repair Ideas

Along with spring cleaning comes some much-needed repairs, a few minor adjustments, and taking care of the little things that have been driving you crazy for months. That's where these home repair ideas come in (but even for the frugal, there are some things that should be left to the pros. See left.).

Reader redrobinrockn in Missouri sent us some quick tips found on Frugal For Life. We know the list of how-to's for home repair is a long one, so this is just a start. What are some of your home repair remedies?

One Frugal for Life tip that stands out (actually this one is more of a reminder): "Make sure to fix leaky faucets. A faucet dripping once a minute, (60x an hour) will cause you to lose 11 gallons of water a month." That said, can we get some input on how to take care of those leaky faucets?

(Thanks, redrobinrockn and Dawn!)
