When it comes to repairing things around the home, I think sometimes we shy away from trying because we either don’t have the time or we don’t have the expertise to tackle the job. Or, frankly, we’d love a good excuse to buy a shiny, new replacement.

Today I thought I’d share with you a few of my favorite money-saving mends I’ve done over the past few years. These fixes were easy, cheap and have stood the test of time.
What stuff around your home have you chosen to fix or give new life to rather than buying new?
