Tom Kraeutler of The Money Pit.

I just bought a house … where do I start?

That’s the question I’m going to ask Tom Kraeutler, one half of the fab duo of The Money Pit, who is hosting a webinar on home improvements on a budget.

I’m clueless on where to start. We had to fix up a bathroom thanks to a 1980s sink but other than that, I dont’ know if I should replace the floors first or paint or fix up the yard/driveway or put in closet organizers or the main bathroom. The house isn’t in bad condition, just needs to be youthened (my invented word :)) up. HELP ME, Tom!

Also, my parents live with me so I’ll want to know what low-cost (really emphasis low-cost) updates I can make to make the house safer for my mom and dad yet not seem to institutional. I want it safe and pretty.
