More Time for Yourself, Your Family
One of the biggest motivations for DIFM is time. There are only so many hours in a day, so many days in a week, so many…you get the point. Why spend a weekend repairing the gutters when you can hire it out and instead spend a full Saturday with your growing children? (They won’t be little forever!) Why take a vacation day to install closet drawers, hangers, and cabinets when you could spend that time fishing, hiking, or golfing?
Things Actually Get Done
How many projects have you planned to start? How many projects have you started? How many projects actually made it to completion? When you take a DIFM approach, the project, whether it’s a massive home remodel or a slight redecoration, is more likely to be completed quickly.
You Already DIFM More Than You Realize
Think DIFM is not for you? Are you a fiercely independent, self-reliant individual who prefers to take on a challenge with your own skills and intuition? That’s great, and we certainly applaud your abilities! But be aware: you DIFM more often than you think.
Have you ever gone through an automated carwash because you didn’t have time for the manual wash? Have you ever taken your vehicle for an oil change instead of doing it yourself? Have you ever ordered a pizza for delivery instead of picking it up?
You could have washed your car manually, changed the oil and filter yourself, and made a pizza from scratch. But you didn’t; you saved time and hassle by letting someone else do all of these tasks for you.
The same principle applies to your home. It’s far faster, easier, and more effective to hire a professional to build a custom closet or home office.
