Since the nationwide lockdown in March, many Americans, specifically millennials, have become more resourceful and better homeowners. A survey done by OnePoll and Bernzomatic states that 81% of millennials have done a home improvement project this year, which is much higher than that of other generations. Additionally, two-thirds of them claimed that they wanted to save money and that is why they chose to take on a project.

Most homeowners have saved approximately $160 on their home expenses since learning to complete projects themselves.  These projects have ranged from landscaping to kitchen renovations to replacing windows and more. Although the unprecedented lockdown put a hold on some plans, millennials have shown resilience this year by finding ways to improve their homes and save money as well.
