Re: Cost/investment spreadsheet

I've been keeping track of it in my build thread...

There's noway someone could buy an rv that is purpose built for what I have spent building mine... I have been keeping track for myself, I like knowing how thrifty I am... Like Lorna said, it's kinda like a game...

Re: Cost/investment spreadsheet

I guess I'm like Bapos----click delete! I know without even thinking about it that I have spent way more $ on my project than I could ever recoup much less justify! OH well. I'm still able to pay my bills and I can't think of anything I'd rather spend $ on than my old bus---besides, as long as I am not causing my family any grief why muddy the waters with facts when the enthusiasm over the project seems to encourage creativity among them.

Lest you think I am a spendthrift, I have kept detailed records of expenditures of all my previous projects and for the same reason as others I guess.

WTF (pardon my French). This project isn't a business endeavor--it's just for FUN! Jack

Re: Cost/investment spreadsheet

I've always been very frugal... Always looking for a deal and get a weird sense of pride from it... My wife gets annoyed by it and doesn't like shopping with me for anything... I just painted my house a couple months back and got two 5 gallon buckets of Berh's best stuff at Home Depot ($180 each) for $20... The color was off a tad for another customer, but looked great on my house... I talked about that deal for weeks... I just get a kick out of it I guess...
