For example - do you try and get a birth and death certificate for everyone? Doesn't that get a little pricey? I am trying to get DOB and lo...

Re: Do Instead of Buy

When we first got married we did everything ourselves. Actually we had no other choice so we painted, refinished floors, refinished furniture, grew crops, canned and froze produce, did minor electrical and plumbing work and all maintenance. If we did not know how to do something, we went to the libr...
