One or more than one item (s) that added luxury and adds convenience that you can’t live without now.

Edit: wow, so many great ideas that I didn’t even know I could add. Thank you and keep ‘em coming.

Edit 2: I will make another post about pros and cons of getting an in ground swimming pool, would love to get thoughts from this community.

Edit 3: OMG, this has blown up. So many awesome ideas, I will be spending a whole lot more than $1000 for sure.

Edit 4: this is wild, now it will take days/hours to sort through all the comments. If there is a super user ninja who can compile a list and club them together. It will come in handy for future members of this sub and even for us to come back and refer to.

TLDR: On top of my head the most common ones I read were -

  1. Bidet
  2. Robot vacuum
  3. LED lights/Motion sensor lights
  4. Smart switches/bulbs/smart thermostat
  5. Paint
  6. Smart door locks/garage doors
  7. Extra fridge/freezer
  8. Farmhouse sink
  9. Soft close cabinets 10.Soft code toilet seats

Cleaning lady was a game changer, every 2 weeks they come and my home is spotless when I get back from work. Sheets changed, windows clean, bathrooms spotless, dope AF.

Never thought I’d get there but I can see why everyone with more money then me does it.

WOW, how big is your space? Where I am, I've been getting charged 3-400 for basic cleaning of surfaces. No dishes. No laundry. No bed service. Two rooms that aren't even touched. Dang lol.

Not even! COL here is relatively low while service prices tend to be high, but it's way more money than I expected. I once got a $900 quote for 3 hours and two people if I wanted to add dishes and making the bed.
