The internet in general is an amazing tool for information and learning. With the inception of streaming video, that concept has been taken to a whole other level entirely. Whether you realize it or not, YouTube is one of the most useful websites that exists on the internet. Sure, it certainly contains its fill of ridiculous, over-the-top, strange, boring, spammy and just plain bad videos, to list a few, but there’s no argument that YouTube is the home of a vast array of instructional and educational videos.
The rule of thumb for life is pretty much this: If you can do it yourself instead of employ someone else to do whatever it is, it’s almost definitely always going to be cheaper. Typically the problem with doing it yourself is the fact that you just don’t have the know-how to go about getting it done. If you’re one of those people that wants to do a lot of different projects in your house but doesn’t know exactly how to go about it, you would absolutely benefit from watching someone show you first. Below are 8 DIY YouTube channels that should cover just about everything you could want to know about household DIY projects.
HouseImprovements is a DIY YouTube channel that covers a broad range of DIY projects including plumbing, carpentry, and electrical. Currently there are 136 videos to utilize.
FIX IT Home Improvement is a DIY YouTube channel that (you guessed it) largely helps you fix things around the house.
DIY HIP Chicks is a DIY YouTube channel mostly aimed at women who don’t have much experience with tools and household projects but serves as a very useful tool to anyone looking for the correct way to approach smaller jobs.
Home Repair Tutor is another very useful DIY YouTube channel for home repairs but also covers home remodeling projects.

When it comes to home gardening, Growing Your Greens is a must follow DIY YouTube channel.
