Had one project where I never got past the "parts collecting/buying" stage. Spent (wasted) lots of money in the process. I do enjoy all the search - find & buy time it takes to start a hot rod project but on this particular one I hardly did more than a couple of days of work before I sold it and moved on to another project.
At least for now (and hopefully FOREVER) I have only ONE hot rod project...... and thankfully I have enough "stuff" from previous projects that I can get a LOT (needs) of things done without spending too much money for now. Getting the "wants" done is always more expensive but usually more fun to do and more rewarding when there get done.
Gotta keep reminding myself to stay focused this time...... especially with the crappy economy, limited funds and new real estate tax assessments coming very soon.
There is NO MORE OVERTIME pay to be had when you're retired and on a SS fixed income.
I need to start selling stuff on eBay. I have a few items that could sell for a decent amount of money. Don't know why I have yet to do it!!!!???!!!!
I also need to get some stuff on Craigs List. I have had pretty good success selling stuff there before.
