One of the reasons that I wanted to create this blog is to give DIYers a place to go to find information more quickly than it can be found by searching the internet. Before I do a project, I often spend many hours scouring the internet and my collection of books for advice on how to do things or better ways to do things I already know how to do. The internet is the most amazing tool as you truly can find anything you are looking for. I am going to tell you about a few of my favorite sites for Do-it-yourself projects.
Ok so I know what you are thinking. Duh Kelly, everyone knows that. The reason that I put is as my number one site is because you really can find just about any how to video and sometimes you even get written instructions along with it. For example, last year I learned how to crochet kids hats on youtube. I have learned how to strip paint, hang a door, install carpet, stop my stairs from squeaking and a million more things. So next time you are stuck, check Youtube. The answer is surely there.
Here is the link to make your own baby hat. You will need to know how to crochet and then the video will show you the rest. If you do not know how to crochet there is a beginning video for that too.
I use this website daily for things like looking up a bread recipe to finding a recipe that uses the food in my fridge. It has a very simple to use recipe box feature that makes it easy to save recipes that you like. One of the things that makes this site better than others, in my opinion, is that it allows you save notes about a recipe after you have made it. This is so handy when you make changes to a recipe. This is a unique feature for an unpaid user. Most sites make you pay a fee to be able to do this.
So if you don’t know about this one hold on to your pants. Ok, but seriously this is one of my favorite blogs. The woman that writes this blog is constantly adding new coupons and discounts that she has found. Some days there are 50+ things added. This is a great resource for someone that wants to learn more about using coupons and saving money. She also posts all kind of great deals from all over the web. This is really one to check out.
So there you have it…my top three! I must say that I have also heard AMAZING things about pinterest.com but have not yet had the chance to truly explore the site so I am not ready to add it to my top sites list.
When I created this blog my vision was to create a blog where I could put some of my own tips but also a place where other people could add their ideas, know how and inspiration. I would love to hear what your favorite sites are. Send them to me and I will add them to the list. I can’t wait to see what sites other people love. If you would like to tell me about a couple of the sites you like and do a guest post please let me know and I will tell you what you need to do. Thanks again!
