Of all the interesting things I could think to do with $3,000, installing a new furnace is not one of them.
Replacing my dingy kitchen linoleum and the worn out carpet in the family room? That would be a pleasure for me to tend to.
Exchanging my unpredictable old stove with a brand new gas range? Totally fun, the stuff of dreams.
Investing in another set of bookshelves and—hey, why not—a new leather sofa to go with? Oooh, I’m having fun now.
But spending all that money on a shiny new…furnace? A boring old basement furnace?
All for the Greater Glory,
