I seem to have champagne taste with my beer budget but some things are really worth the expense. My husband and I got sick & tired of buying a $100 vacuum every year-it started adding up! It seemed after a few months all of the others lost their suction. How frustrating when you have a house full of dogs (just 2) and allergy sufferers. Not our beloved Dyson though. My husband even has an affection for it. You might catch him showing it to a house guest, as if he actually uses it. I have to say, it's like a BMW. Have you ever driven one? The German machine is like no other- in cars & vacuums alike! Don't feel guilty about it, if you are in the market for one, use your expired Bed Bath & Beyond coupon for 20% off and go for it! You won't regret it!
As a woman married to a "garage" type of guy, he likes to work on his vintage Harley, I found this website a hoot! Most garages I go into are a wreck (including my own). They often become a dumping ground for whatever we get tired of looking at in the house, toys, holiday decorations, the old couch you just can't let go. Wouldn't it be nice to walk into a space that looks like this? Check out this site carguygarage.com. It's fascinating! I guess if you have $12,000 to spend on your garage good for you & why not? There are some interesting gift ideas like a garage refrigerator, customizable signs and metal pegboards to hold tools. It's worth a browse on the site if not only for ideas.
