As regular readers know, we are steadily working our way through the "punch list" created by our new to us home inspection. We also have added some things after living here for 4 months.
Today though it hit me that in terms of resource allocation we could save $425 by not installing a gutter for the patio area given how infrequently it rains here and how many pine needles would have to be regularly cleaned out of that gutter. Cancelled that quickly.
The money will be better spent towards a whole house water filtering system as the water here is very, very hard and leaves deposits in and on everything. That is next up on our list.
On the other hand, although I have been quite comfortable sleeping on our new mattress, Hubby has not. We spent a good chunk of money yesterday on a cotton wool mattress topper and he slept much better. I think the bed is slightly less comfortable but I can live with it.
We also bought 4 tickets to a comedy show to attend when our local son and DIL spend the weekend soon.
So there you have it. Long term goal is make our money last if we live to 100+. Current comfort and is sleeping well and not battling hard water deposits (not to mention not having to replace appliances often due to said water). Life enjoyment is fun time with loved ones laughing hopefully.
