We recently bought a near new home, which was a significant size upgrade from our last.

It’s amazing, those ‘little things’ you take for granted, then you’ve moved in. You haven’t the desposible cash just sitting around, because the damn bank just cleaned out your savings, so you’re tapped out. Pretty much all you can do is save $$$$ and buy what you need, and or just rig up something to get you through.

Some sheets and blankets make for some really nice curtains, for example......

I am doing so well in 0bamaland. I am personally selling off everything that I don’t have an immediate need for and investing in lead and brass.

Yeah, with this booming economy I just have to stack the money in bales and just wonder what to buy next. This article was what I really needed.

I don’t think those stairs fold up.it would weigh a ton without counter weights and it would tear off the trim on the treads.

I think it’s wonderful that people think of these things and others have the money to buy them. This is called “capitalism.” The best system in the world for generating wealth and the best way to encourage human creativity. The world is so full of lovely stuff.

My daddy always said anyone asking how much something cost obviously couldn’t afford it.

I like the door with colored glass in it. That is actually doable and attractive.

To be honest, I’m a traditionalist and there is only one of these innovations I would like in my own house. But inventions, design improvements, and new materials can improve our lives, and the impulse to have something better drives our economy.

It’s one reason America became so glorious. No, not because we are all obsessed with “keeping up with the Joneses,” out of resentment and envy, but because we can observe that the Joneses’ lives are better due to some lovely new possession, so we are willing to work hard, save our money, and then spend to have better lives, too.

Take the example of the deck. Fifty years ago, the deck was almost unknown outside of beach towns. But they really do add to the quality of life and allow you to enjoy more of your house, especially if your house is built on a lot with a steep grade. Now, most houses across the US have them. Building decks is a multi-billion-dollar business employing many people in a complex network of suppliers, designers, builders, and employees. New materials have been engineered to make decks better and safer. Even homeowners who do it themselves contribute by buying materials and tools. This innovation has improved everybody’s life. Classic American economics at work!

She probably isn’t for sale.
But she definitely belongs on any list of things I need in my home.

Collection agents, repo men, bankruptcy attorneys. Just a few examples of occupations thriving under the Obamaconomy.
