Last year, which was my first retirement year, I cleared out the attic and the basement. This week I am having the house insulated. I did not have this project in mind last year but:
- They need the attic empty: check
- They need the house's original paint to repaint the holes they drill for blowing in the insulation. How convenient that when I cleaned the basement I got rid of all the dried up cans and put the rest in one spot. House paint? No problem. Right here.
Per original thread topic, losing money. I did lose about $2000 on heirloom diamonds taken out of the safety deposit box and consigned with an auction house. At the time, I figured it was nuts to keep paying $60 annually to keep things I was never going to use. Lets see - $2000 divided by 60.
