Are You Familiar with the Term "DIY"?


In today’s "Do-It-Yourself" world, you can learn how to repair, install, or design just about anything on your own.

The term "DIY" stands for Do It Yourself, and it is the ultimate money-saving tool. It is a way to reward yourself financially and experience the satisfaction of completing a project on your own. Also, by engaging your children or grandchildren in the process, you will instill in them the confidence to do likewise.

In today’s world, you can learn how to repair, install, or design about anything on your own. Tutorials are available everywhere. YouTube has video instructions at your fingertips.

Just last week, I replaced the hydraulic lifts on the rear door of my wife’s van. I watched a YouTube video, ordered the part on Amazon, installed it in six minutes, and saved myself time at a dealership and lots of money.

If you need to install a particular product, check out the manufacturer’s website help.

Big-box home improvement centers offer clinics for various projects. An hour invested at a clinic pays big when learning directly from a pro. Specialty shops have classes that demonstrate things from cooking to how to refinish furniture. Many of these cost nothing except the cost of materials.

Pinterest is dedicated to allowing individuals to share their projects with others. Users can search for specific DIY projects. My wife uses it for gardening help and recipes. Pinterest is an excellent source for brands to promote DIY projects and ideas to the world.

There is an exciting part of the DIY trend. Millennials are now running some of the most prosperous startup companies. How? They are finding great success by developing their own ideas, brands, and market positions.  If Millennials don’t see what they want or cannot find it somewhere, they will find a way to do it themselves.
