So ive been cleaning up/packing my apartment. Im moving into my house at the end of the week.
So last night i took some stuff down to the dumpster.
The dumpster is usually quite full, i noticed on top a box on its side..
Full of retro consoles in mint condition (looks like they were in that box for years)
So i grabbed it lol.
All the hookups, controllers and there were games...
The mrs and i tested them all out.
And they work!! Mmy favourite is probably the gameboy player on the Gamecube..those things are hard to find lol.
That's a pretty sweet monitor. I've been looking for a large ultrawide for a while now and this is the cheapest I have seen one that is higher res than 1080p. I might phone in tomorrow and ask them if there is anything I can do to reserve one for when they restock or something.
If you can't find that one, they also have an ASUS on sale.
I might cancel my Samsung, and get the ASUS on Jan 1st when my new benefits kick in with work. I have $5000 USD/year where i can right off pretty well anything.
Nice Perk Ozzi!
It is, Plus i have full health coverage, among other perks.
Jan 1st my gym membership is going to be written off,
setting a hefty chunk aside for daycare, and the rest will be going on my home internet, and my cell phones.
Last year I had bought a house. It was a contractor special, so over the last year, and a half we have been doing a ton of work to it.
I renovated the back addition, and the upstairs (I just need to put a new floor down upstairs when I have two or three days off, which is on my agenda over the next few months.) The backyard has been landscaped, and next season I'll be pouring a concrete walkway, and a hotub pad with some anchors for a new deck.
Anyways, yesterday I had hired a company to put some spray foam in the attic, there was absolutely no insulation up there before, just the rafters. All I can say is WOW huge difference. I got home today, 30+ degrees outside, and the house is sitting at 22 without the AC on.
Gotta love adulting, but shit I was talking to a realtor friend, and he said my house has doubled in value, (without the Reno's) he said with the Reno's I've done already, he said to add an extra 75-100k on the figure he gave me.
Our plan was to flip the house, but we're leaning to keep it, put 50-75k into it to bring it up to firecode, and bam we have a legal duplex which will net us close to 3k month
