Mad About Money

The American Gaming Association estimated that $10 billion was wagered on college basketball games during the 2018 annual March tournament.* With that kind of money, you could have afforded the most expensive home ever sold in the U.S. this past January. A $238 million New York City penthouse was recently acquired by billionaire Ken Griffin. The 18 story structure is 24,000 square feet near Central Park and has a number of amenities, including a basketball court! As the founder of the hedge fund Citadel, it was noted that he needed a place to stay while in NYC for business.

Have you stayed on the sidelines and kept your hard-earned money or maybe won a few bucks in the office pool? Here are a few ways under $100 to spring up your current home:

  • Mirror Frames: Boring bathroom mirrors can come alive by framing them with inexpensive wood trim, found at any hardware store.
  • Cabinet Stain: Forget the full remodel – staining your current cabinets can be a fun and simple weekend project.
  • Kitchen Hardware: After staining, consider adding knobs to drawers for a chic touch to the commonly-used space.
  • Purge! Online platforms make it easy to sell any unneeded items from around the house. Make some extra money while clearing some space.
