"Searching for a house or apartment is difficult enough on its own; transforming it into your home is an entirely different story, especially for those who have never lived on their own before. As millennials create their first homes away from home, they are bombarded with constant DIY ideas and articles on social media. Unfortunately, many of the seemingly simple ideas are beyond the average twenty-something's means. Home Improvement Projects for the Busy & Broke aims to give you the knowhow and teach you to decorate your home while staying within your budget, all presented in an engaging and approachable way. Each project is accompanied by a list of tools and materials needed, along with step-by-step instructions. Salway uses her wit and playful personality to describe her journey of renovating and redecorating not only her two-bedroom Williamsburg apartment but also the New York farmhouse she and her husband bought as a major fixer-upper. Just like millennials today, she took on these projects while working a full-time job and sticking to a strict budget-the advice is tried and true! A resource for anyone who is short on time and strapped for cash, Home Improvement Projects for the Busy & Broke will help you turn any space into a unique home you love and are proud to show off.

I found this book to be funny and somewhat helpful. It's very basic and more for people who don't even know where to start with home improvement. However, it had a few easy projects and advice that I found interesting and fun. I am not offended by profanity so that was not a problem for me and I thought it added to the fun of reading the book. If you are offended by profanity though take the title as fair warning and do not pick up this book because it's everywhere inside.

I did notice the title and that a "swear" word was used, but really, do we have to use words of profanity in a home improvement book? After leafing through the book and seeing "sh**" and "fu**", I put the book aside.
