Do you often view DIY projects as tricks performed by craft-based magicians? Do you find when a DIY task is labeled “easy,” what they actually seem to mean is “marginally less difficult than the impossible things we also have listed”? If so, you have found the DIY list for you.
Granted, true DIYers would probably scoff that these many of things are listed as DIYs (versus simple tricks or tips), but don’t listen to them. Be proud of your sub-par DIY ability and loudly boast about the latest cat toy you built for your pet (involving attaching a piece of string to your fan). These projects will occupy at least several minutes of your time!
