This week I’m launching a new video series I couldn’t be more excited about with the Design Network called Modern Home Ec. Each week will be a new short video where you get to learn everything from how to changing air filters, filling all the holes in the walls from where I’ve been hanging pictures to getting the toughest stains out of counter tops.
I’ve always loved being in school and learning. Whether it was grade school, high school, culinary school or taking writing or pottery classes I’ve always felt like a sponge for picking up hobbies or new found talents that I’ve been able to spin into my work and home life. One talent I never figured out, though, was the fine art of Home Ec and learning the simplest tasks to fixing things around my house. How come no one ever taught me these little quick fixes? Let me tell you, it’s not just a man’s job!
You would think that even changing a lightbulb would be easy, but head to the hardware store and looking at the shelves filled with different styles and types of bulbs through me into a panic. For years I’ve been wanting someone to teach me how to learn how to take care of small DIY projects around our house without having to pay someone else to do them for me.
This weeks video features my handy fix it guru, Jeff Enden, teaching me how to fix a drippy or leaky toilet. This would have cost me over $100 if I called a plumber, but we did it together for just over $10. Talk about savings and I learned how to do it for years to come!
Let me know what you think and if you want me to make a video with a quick Modern Home Ec solution let me know in the comments below!
