Installing A Toilet Seat

People always look at me funny when I talk about some of the things I do around here. I get a lot of "Why doesn't your husband do that?" but come on people women can do thing to! Changing a toilet seat out isn't exactly rocket science let's face it. Many single women and heck even some men hire someone to do it and spend $100+. Well here I am to show you that you to can save money by doing it yourself. A toilet can seat can be bought at pretty much any superstore or hardware store in America. I got mine from Walmart for $20, but you can usually pick one up at low as $10. You will never need more then a pair of pliers and a flat screw driver(I used a butter knife).
First you simply remove the bolt off the nut. This one was plastic and could be turned by hand

Take the time to scrub the heck out of it while it is off! Sadly that is clean.lol

My new one came with a plastic washer and a bolt. I needed pliers to put it back on

Make sure to put the plastic washer on it keeps the seat from moving and breaking! 



Simple as can be you saved big $ and probably spent less time doing it yourself then waiting for the plumber to actually get there!

I agree you do save money. I find myself doing a lot of repairs myself everything is just so costly when you have others come in to do it.
