I had previously written about how my HOA wanted my opinion on them spending $15k for 2 new signs. Well I received a newsletter stating that only 20% of homes had responded which they didn’t feel was enough to make a decision yet. They also received some other feedback on the proposal so will continue to investigate and ask again later.
Hard to believe so few of my neighbors cared about a potential $86.50 bill they may receive.
I am going to try to track my latest home improvement project – finishing my basement. Luckily when I moved in previous owner had already started the project by framing and dry walling the walls, so pretty much all I have to do is put in the ceiling and floors. I will be doing all the work myself with some help from friends and family so there will be no labor costs involved with the exception of installing the carpet.

The Question of the Day at MoneyAndValues asks the burning question “Do you involve your values in your money decisions?”
So I have a plan to finish my basement before the end of the year. Well, not really so much of a plan as an idea. I wasn’t going to start until fall/winter but saw Lowes has 20% off ceiling tiles until this weekend so I decided to jump on those.
How I try to save money is by using my previously posted Dealpass gift cards as well as the readily accessable 10% off coupons. The coupons are pretty rampant on ebay – just search for ‘home depot coupons’ and you should get a slew of results with prices around $1.50 per coupon.
So, for tiles that are normally $30.74 a box it ended up as:
$30.74 – 20% sale = $24.59
$24.59 – 10% coupon = $22.13
$22.13 – 20% gift cards = $17.70
So that ends up being 43% off or $13.04 per box. 9 boxes purchased ends up being a $117.36 savings. Just an example of how I try to purchase things I know I will need.
With the outrageous price of hiring a full-service real estate agent to sell our home we decided to sell our townhouse for sale by owner. How hard can it be right?
