5.0 PARTIAL DO-IT-YOURSELF - DIY
Remember, you don't have to do every last detail yourself. You might do some yourself and get a professional to do the rest, or vice versa. Here are some examples:
Why pay a lawyer from $60-$200 an hour to do basic research or shuffle papers when you might be able to do it yourself.
You may be able to get a contractor to build your house but leave the inside finishing and painting for you to do.
Learn to test and diagnose problems before you go to the repair shop, whether it is a car or a VCR. Accurately write down the problem. It is important to note exactly what is happening, not what you think is the cause. This will save time and money.
