Spring is here and Summer is almost upon us. If you are anything like me, then there are probably a number of projects around the house that you have been putting off for a while during the colder months.
It’s nearing the time to break out those tools and get to work on those honey-do lists. Below are a couple ideas of projects you may want to take on and some coupons from Groupon.com to help you save money in the process!
Add Some LED Lighting Outside
Nothing is cooler to me than those solar panel LED lights you can throw out along your driveway or walkway. The are inexpensive, help make your home look much nicer in the evening, and prevent slips/trips/falls if you have guests walking around at dusk.
Check out some of these cool coupon codes for Home Depot to get 25% off of lighting.
Build a New Deck
I have built a couple of decks in my day, and I must say it is one of my favorite types of projects to take on. There is a ton of prep work before you go picking up a hammer such as:
- creating your deck design
- getting a building permit with the city/county
- purchasing all your materials
But if you are up to all of that, you can save yourself a bundle by building a deck yourself. You would likely pay 3-4 more to have a contractor come build a deck for you. Of course, it is very difficult to build a proper deck without the correct tools. Check out these coupons from Sears to save $20-$35 on site wide purchases.
Summer Is a Perfect Time for Redecorating
Not every Summer project has to involve getting your hands dirty! Summer is a perfect time to finish that cleaning you were supposed to do in the Spring 🙂 After everything is all nice and tidy, why not consider redecorating a room to spice things up a bit?
It’s very easy to go a little overboard when it comes to redecorating and spend a small fortune at Pier-one or the like. But, there is a way to save a ton of money when redecorating. Shop on eBay! EBay is a great way to find cool decorations without breaking the bank. Check out this Groupon coupon page for eBay where you can save 20% off of a number of items!
Summer is a great time to fix up your home or just spruce things up a bit in a room or two. The good news is that starting a new summer project does not have to be expensive! Make sure you take advantage of coupons to save yourself a bit of hard earned money and enjoy all the fruits of your hard work.
