One of the most frugal things I have ever done, whether I realized it or not, is to marry my sweet husband. While I love my Daddy dearly, he is seriously lacking in some handyman skills, which means he gets stuck hiring out a bunch of stuff that I don't have to pay for, because my husband can do it! In the last year, he installed ceiling fans/lights in both of our extra bedrooms. Granted, my Dad maybe could have done that, but he could never have figured out how to run the wires such that the switch (which originally operated a randomly-placed outlet) actually works the new fixture! Yahoo! Here are a few pics of the most recent installation - in the guest bedroom.
