Some friends of mine decided to update the one and only bathroom in their house recently.  They had lived in their home for 20+ years and over the past several years had fixed up every other room – but the bathroom was overdue.  However, they had a budget so they wanted to make smart choices […] Read more…

As luck would have it, I was driving to my parents’ house recently and one of their neighbors had a piece of furniture out by the curb with a sign that had one of my favorite four-letter words written on it: FREE.  (Another of my favorite four-letter words is SALE, but FREE is better than […] Read more…

Occasionally I look on my local Craigslist for furniture deals.  If you’ve ever searched through the plethora of listings then you know it’s not always an easy task to find what you want in decent shape, at a decent price, within a reasonable geographic distance.  (And you hope that it’s not already sold, if someone […] Read more…
