Great cost or time saving tips.

This is a "how to" magazine for non-professionals with tips that just make sense and don't break the bank to get equipment that will have little use after the original project. Like life, more than one field of interest of home improvement. Good photo explainations. Les...
This is a "how to" magazine for non-professionals with tips that just make sense and don't break the bank to get equipment that will have little use after the original project. Like life, more than one field of interest of home improvement. Good photo explainations. Less ads than most trade magazines.

Look I am a wood worker/ novice plumber/ painter/ novice electrician/ novice a/c heating repairman/ pest controller/ gardner/ lawnboy/ husband and nothing in this magazine could ever help me with things around the house. This is one long advertisement for crap that wouldn't even make in a real man's tool box or garage. Do they show you how to install a disposal? Or how about installing an exterior motion detection light? How about snaking out your main sewer line when half of your house's drains stop working? How about fixing a leaking faucet? Or installing a dishwasher? The answer is no to all these things that a "handyman" would need to know and more. This mag is written for DIY''ers yet it contains nothing to actually do. The only thing I have learned is that this mag needs to be taken out with trash and as the first act of a handyman I think my project was a success.
