2.0 HOW TO DECIDE WHAT IS WORTH YOUR WHILE - PART 1 - DO IT YOURSELF - DIY

== You will save the most money on something that you will do a number of times.

For example, you will fill out a tax return every year, but you will not write a contract or buy a house every year. So it is worth your while to learn how to do your own taxes. It is probably not worth your while to learn all the legal terms involved with a contract.

== Don't do something you hate or avoid, or will just put off.

For example, if you hate doing taxes, you may be better off paying for help. As always, be realistic.

== If you don't have the time, don't attempt it.

If you don't have enough time, then tackling a do-it-yourself task is just asking for trouble.

== When you first start a do-it-yourself job, it will take too long, and you will pay too much.

The first time you do a job, such as change the oil in your car or bake a cake, it will take time. You may have doubts about whether this will really save you money.

However, you will get faster, learn how to take shortcuts, and learn how to pay less for supplies. Have faith.

This is another reason why you should only attempt something that you will do many times. You will get much better and much faster.

== Do something you enjoy, that you are good at, and that will save you a lot of money.
