You do need the funds before you can even think of upgrading your appliances, but you just know that the latest models of dishwashers, washing machines and dryers are much more efficient than your current model. In the long run, it's good for the environment and good for your wallet, so find a good price and go for it.
How to Care for Your Washing Machine
We all know how to paint, we just don't want to deal with the hassle of prep and clean up. But do you really want to pay someone to do it? Instead of taking on a whole room, start with one accent wall. It will take no time at all. I prefer not use the blue painters tape because it take so long to trim out the ceiling and base boards, and paint seems to invariably bleed through anyway. A steady hand will go a long way for trimming.
Note: in this paint job the door frame and base board were painted the same color as the wall for an easier paint job and a modern, uniform look.
Paint the trim around your house. I won't lie to you, painting trim throughout your house is labor intensive, but the difference it makes is remarkable.
My husband has been talking about sealing and painting our garage floor since we bought our house. It hasn't happened yet and I am not invested enough in the garage floor to nag him about it. But wouldn't it be so cool to pull into a garage with a floor you could almost eat off of?
