GET FIT: FIX UP A FIXER UPPER
Beautifying America one fixer upper at a time. A good way to show persons what to look for in a fixer upper on realtor.com searching for $0 to $30,000 fixer uppers in say, i. e., Tulsa, OK. When to call expert.
How to check on BBB online. My least expensive Kenmore washer/dryer I purchased in 1992 is still bee bopping along (knock on wood... and I just did). Other GREAT sponsors are Home Depot and Lowes etc. just like SEARS is stellar store.
Some for under $10,000 in Tulsa, OK. I saw one for under $15,000 in Dr. Phil's home town of Vinita. Robin's home town of Duncan has lots of fixer upper potentials as well under $20,000.
I'm person who thought of SEARS sponsoring home renovation series like do on Extreme Makeover Home Edition that began in 2003. SEARS sent me a thank you 2/7/2002. However, since I said a FREE idea, I got nothing beyond thanks for my "creative ideas" and "loyalty" to SEARS. I'd asked for a modest eco/senior friendly cottage if idea used... Yet I did say, too, ultimately what good is and idea if not shared and THE BEST WAY TO INVEST IN AMERICA IS TO INVEST IN AMERICANS.
Need a change of scenery? Actually, sometimes this can be therapeutic. However, since 60% of moves fail another good reason to have a show, too, on adjusting to a new place to live. Such as college students as well since at one time 50% drop out rate of Freshman. That's a BIG adjustment to move, adjust to new place and begin a full class load at the same time.
However, a family project could be fixing up a fixer upper over the summer so student has a washer/dryer and soft place to land... Or even over a year so can have in-State tuition if attending in another State. Then, when classes begin student isn't on mental overload with full load of classes PLUS adjusting to a new area... JUST AN IDEA. Many are struggling now and have NO idea could buy a fixer upper to fix up as a family project for less than renting. Summer a great time to camp out and rough it while refurbishing a home. Frugality is a lost art waiting to be reborn.
THANK YOU FROM SEARS 2/7/2002
I got idea for SEARS as sponsor of my home renovation series idea since use to ship by rail HONOR BILT HOMES by rail from 1908-1940. You can Google to see those if you never have. Below looks similar to home my grandfather built w/address same date of his Bday 817 W. Eufaula, Norman, OK 73069. I think is still there although no longer in the family. My dearly departed mom's fave home growing up> nearby Washington grade school she and I both attended.
Ironically, thought of idea since unable to replace my home lost after multiple family illness... even saving all my pennies to since 1994. Seems less likely now since over $7,000 of savings has gone to medical bills.
So if y'all or another ever do a promotional perhaps y'all could help me have a home again. Doesn't have to be fancy and could be refurbished w/recycled materials like church pews, hardwood flooring etc. I do have some elbow grease still. In the meantime, if you find a miracle deal let me know please.
America wants YOU to fix up a fixer upper... Listen to song below to get pumped up to fix up a fixer upper. "This Land is your land. This land is my land. From California to the New York Islands. From the Red wood forests to the gulf stream waters...'' This Land was Made for You and Me (by Woody Guthrie) born in Okemah, OK, like my dad.
Sit a spell... Have a listen... Y'all come back now... and call me too. ThankU.
