Get Your Weekends Back When You
Put Home Maintenance on Autopilot!
There are never enough hours to get everything done, and at the end of the week you want to relax. That's why most homeowners defer home maintenance and repairs until you've got company coming or there's an emergency that can't be ignored. That might work for a while but ultimately you'll spend more money when problems get bigger and costlier to repair.
We don't want you to defer needed maintenance, or worry about the list of chores that aren't getting done. That's why we created a way for you to build a personal home maintenance plan, budget and schedule. You prioritize the projects you want to handle personally, and identify the contractors you need to build relationships with, and when you need to call them.
That's why you need a home maintenance strategy and plan, so you can stop worrying about all the home maintenance chores you keep putting off … week after week, month after month. Everyone does it, it's normal because we're all too busy juggling more priorities that we know what to do with.
So maybe it's time to stop believing your superwoman, that you can make the clock stand still while you finish your list of projects. It's not going to happen in our lifetime. And do we really want to travel in time … remember Back to the Future?
Here's what I know works. You've got to match your home maintenance strategy to your personality and lifestyle, or it's not going to happen. And that's where Getting Your Weekends Back: How to Keep Your Home in Tip Top Shape Without Sacrificing Your Time, Money or Energy starts. Well, the eBook actually starts with the benefits of timely and consistent home maintenance to get you motivated.

And while that might be obvious, how to create a home maintenance schedule that you can follow consistently is a challenge for most of us, and I'm no different. In fact writing this book helped me get more clear about how much home maintenance I was willing to do myself.
For my busy schedule, where I write more about everything related to the home and my favorite tool is my computer, not a power drill. I decided 4 hours a month was what I could comfortably commit to. And for everything else, I'm hiring others to do the work for me because I know from running a handyman business for 8 years, it's more cost effective to prevent problems, rather deal with the cost and stress of repairs … which always happen at the worst time.
