Did you know during the economic recession a lot of people spend more time at home and therefore they spend more money on their home than they had in the past while they were working? In fact, people went out to eat at restaurants less, and they apparently have reinvested that money into their homes. It appears people are readjusting their lifestyle, and the American consumer is saving more on many of their expenses, while they are spending more of their homes.
Of course, during the recession people were not doing major home remodeling, but they are doing small do-it-yourself projects. There was a lot of reorganization of closets, creation of home offices, and all sorts of other things. Perhaps, you are thinking along the same lines and if you are, I'd like to recommend a very good book to you which will help you organize your home, and garage and do-it-yourself. The name of the book is;
"Storage Made Easy," by Manroe, 1995
There are all sorts of wonderful tips in this book, and it explains not only how to do it yourself, but which materials you should use, and where the best locations are to buy the materials on the cheap. Perhaps, you'd like to organize, or re-organize your garage, there is one great chapter in this book just on garages. For the ladies, there are all kinds of tips for organizing your shoes in the closet, and tips to better create storage space at of empty space.
Perhaps, the chapter on the kitchen and living room was the best of all. Would not you like to remove the clutter and make everything look very classy, but still have everything easy to get to? Of course, you would, and that's something this book can do for you. Therefore, I highly recommend it and I hope you think about it.
