Who all just dumps money into an account for the things coming up without keeping exact track of how much is set aside for each thing coming?
I am NOT a numbers person nor am I uber organized with paperwork but obviously we NEED to get on the sinking funds bandwagon here….Can’t I just dump the money into an account for those things that we know are going to come up?
This is kind of a weird, general question, but is there a general non-macro econ guideline to pricing things? Friends moved and couldn’t fit everything so it ended up at my house. I’m freecycling most of it which has little to no value (or actually, if no one responds, I may have a garage sale). Some things have (to my eye) real value (i.e., silk screens in wood frames, light stands, a Nikon F4 lens etc.) but I have no idea what a reasonable price would be. I’m not looking to make huge $ but I don’t want to do my normal $1 per item stuff either.
We have lived in many placee where we didn’t have enough/good storage so I feel your pain. This is the first time we have ever done a kitchen remodel by choice. The only other one was due to minor damage due to a small grease fire. The cabinets, nor the stain, could be matched. It was better overall all to start from scratch. We kept the same footprint but added in some space saving/more efficient accessories. Such as pull out shelves on the bottom instead of stationary shelves, a lazy susan, etc. We are going with all drawers on the bottom on this kitchen with the exception of 2 small places where it would not work well.
I will post more pics later.
