Buying the House... so much to do!

>> 7.28.2009

I, like any new home buyer, want to make my new place as nice as I can make it (without blowing too much $$$). This means prioritizing! With so many ideas and so little money, I was really stressed out!! That was before I sat down and really organized my ideas:

1. I created a list of every room in my house and I wrote everything I wanted to do to each room.

2. I organized my list into: Need/ Want!!!/ want. This helped me realized what projects I would probably want to tackle first.

3. I created a realistic timeline for when I might be able to do the projects. I started filling in the timeline with the "needs" and went from there.

Of course, step four was to create an excel sheet to organize my budget... but I'll share that a little later this week.



How do you prioritize your projects?

You should be a programmer, you would be very good at it! You already have half a flow-chart to begin with!! Excellent, nothing better than a bit of logic behavior!

I love how organized you are and that you have a plan of attack to get your wants/needs met. Great job! I'm so excited for you getting this house and look forward to seeing what you do with it. :)

Way to write down those priorities! My husband and I bought a house one month ago, and while we had intentions to spread out the spending, it hasn't quite gone that way...
