    A new kitchen sink, new entry door, new stove and fan to the outside. Different style window screens that fit properly and stay on, a light under the cabinets, pullout shelving for the two lower corner cabinets, new bathroom sink and a second entry door if possible.

    I‘d purchase a one-way plane ticket to a Central American or South American country (approximately $400), once arriving there, I’d buy a small and comfy cottage or bungalow (approximately $3500), and spend the remainder on a start of the bare necessities, transfer my savings and other funds to an account in a bank there. Home improved by creating a new home, and I’m done!

    :)

    So, the Mrs. is not invited?  You  can't run away from trouble, you know.

      “Invited”?  Grrrrrrrrr. Heck, the less she knows about it, the better. She can always await her own $5,000 offer.  (Element, are you paying attention?)

    Yep. I'll mail it to her. Yes, I also have your address. Jane gave it to me.

    I need my apartment professionally painted. That should take care of most of that $5000. This post was edited by Zack at September 16, 2020 11:41 AM MDT

    I would enclose my upstairs balcony since we never use it.  I could make that my home office and free up the spare bedroom to use as a, well, spare bedroom.

    Insulate and put some floor covering down inthe shed. I use it as a home office - chilly in winter, sweltering in summer.
