7 Lessons I've learned through the years of owning a home:
1/ Don't start a house project when the hardware store is closed.
That's when you'll need a part and be out of luck.
2/ When in doubt, call a plumber.
There's no shame in making sure your house won't flood unexpectedly.
3/ There's no product on earth that keeps gutters clean.
4/ Everything is always about to break.
Just get used to it.
5/ Pristine lawns are overrated.
I will never water them or use weedkiller.
My lawn looks fine.
6/ Tools on an organized pegboard is a huge time-saver.
Worth the investment.
7/ Do projects yourself when possible and learn the skills.
Gives you a chance to buy tools too.
Any more you'd add?
