I mentioned last Friday that I had recently brought a a new mattress and a new set of tires. When two big expenses come up like this, it makes you think about what else might come up next. "They" say things come in threes right?
In anticipation of that third item, I've decided that my to-do list is going to grow a little bigger. At some point in the next couple of months, I'm going to take a tour of all my possessions and assess how long each of them might last. For instance the bedroom set is about 9 years old now, but I think it could last another ten years without a problem. My couch is only 3 years old, but some of the cushions are going to need a little work in a couple of years. The microwave is pretty old and could be the third item to need replacing. At least that's not going to be a pricey fix.
Does anyone else take inventory of his/her possessions?
