As prices and building costs keep rising, the “do-it-yourself” (DIY) trend in the USA continues to grow. “We needed furniture for our living rooms,” says John Ross，“and we just didn’t have enough money to buy it. So we decided to try making a few tables and chairs. w John got married six months ago, and like many young people these days, they are struggling to make a home at a time when the cost of living is very high. The Rosses took a 2-week course for $ 280 at a night school. Now they make all their furniture and repairs around the house.
Jim Hatfield has three boys and his wife has died. He has a full-time job at home as well as in a shoe making factory. Last month, he received a car repair bill for $ 420. “I was deeply upset about it. Now I’ve finished a car repair course. I should be able to fix the car by myself. ”
John and Jim are not unusual people. Most families in the country are doing everything they can to save money so they can fight the high cost of living. If you want to become a
