Home Owner? Strapped? Looking to Save Money?

You'll be relieved to learn that this isn't a pitch for some sort of home equity pyramid scheme...Rather, this report suggests that home owners can save money by learning some DIY skills. I suppose it goes without saying.
The report observes;
However these skills have been steadily declining as more people choose to rely on professionals either due to lack of time or desire to learn them. In fact, research from Bosch shows one in five men (22 per cent) cannot stand doing odd jobs around the house like putting up shelves or decorating a room.
One in five (22 per cent) are honest about their inability to undertake DIY projects, admitting that they dislike the work because they have no idea what they are doing. A similar percentage are just too lazy to do it themselves, meaning some tradesman is probably reaping rewards from their lethargy.
Is that your experience; is the lack of DIY skill in the average home owner resulting in more jobs?
