    I’m bookmarking this. Thank you for taking the time to put this all together. :) I hate feeling helpless when something goes wrong and my husband isn’t around to take care of it.

    Thanks for posting this great list! My garbage disposal got jammed the other day and I was going to have to call a plumber. Now I’m gong to look around for that crank thing. :)

    I love DIY projects. I’m trying to fix all the little thing during the week so my hard working husband can relax at the weekends. Thanks so much for this list.

    Great choice for the WFMW “greatest hits”! This is actually one of my favorites too, I had linked to it back at the end of January!!

    I’m bookmarking this. We’re in the process of buying a home, and the maintenance issue is one of the most stress-inducing parts of it. I’m sure this will come in handy!

    This is such a great list!! It should be printed out – and then put the name and phone number of a professional next to each of those items, so should you need to call a pro, you will have the number already.

    I was quite pleased going through the list, that I knew how to do most of those – and have done most! ahhh home ownership.

    My greatest tip is about Vitamin E
    Have a great day!

    Oooh, I just had an epiphany! This should be sent to all new homeowners. My sister is buying a house this week, her first one and she is certainly going to need some instructions. The link is being sent immediately.
