I love this part. Ok all you shoppers out there, you know
who you are
ready set gooooo. Just explain one thing
to me, why is it we always like the most expensive items on
the shelf? Don't try to deny it, you know it's not just me.
We created a budget to keep us on track (mostly me) so
we can see our daily expenses and where we need to cut some
$'s if other expenses come up, like the roof. We were going
to wait until Spring to get it done, but I think before we
finish the inside we want it off our "to do" list.
If I can give any good reno advice, it would be to create
a realistic budget, try to get as many REAL prices, including
taxes, as you can, and give yourself a contingency fund for
emergencies. In your budget don't forget to plan for the little
things, nails, screws, caulking, door handles, etc. Another
thing I can't say enough of is research your products, go
online and check reviews, research, research and more research!
