More budgeting, and the $500.00 bucket!!!
It’s interesting for me to see which Blog posts garner the most comments. I think the record holder at this point is the post I made several days ago on creating an electrical budget. Not coincidentally (I knew it was going to happen) that was the subject of last evening’s marine maintenance class. Because I had already done some homework on this, the class exercise was interesting, but not in any way enlightening. I think anyone who has done some research on cruising knows enough to try to limit the excess usage of power. For the record, there will be no 1500W hair dryers onboard Katana!
Shifting gears to the subject of money, one thing I have always found amusing is the people who will spend 5 hours doing XYZ task to save themselves $20.00, without factoring in a cost to their 5 hours of time! This brings me to the bucket project. Although it is going well, if I put a dollar figure on the hours I will have spent completing this thing, that stupid bucket will be worth it’s weight in gold! But the experience? Priceless, which is why I am doing it, as opposed to simply buying a ready-made canvas bucket from the chandlery. The bucket itself is simply the vehicle for my sewing practice, and what fun I am having doing it! 🙂
