    Getting the inside of the house painted today. Lived here 2 years and wifey has been nagging since the day we moved in. Why do home builders use the crappiest dead flat paint? It would barely cost them more money to use an eggshell or satin paint and obviously it would probably increase the cost of a home a couple hundred $$ but it looks way better and I think would be a good selling point.

    you will notice it on big areas mostly like big long ceilings if theres any shine to the paint. walls are broken up, windows, doors etc and can stand up to a little gloss

    Amen to this. We had the “A” team install our drywall and the “D” team float and finish. Ceilings look like absolute dog sh*t in the living room and the kitchen. I personally sprayed every ceiling in the house. Pisses me off daily.

    That is why I am reluctant to take off the popcorn on my ceilings. I would probably have to turn around and hire someone to reflect them.

    my living room is fairly large, 14 x 27 foot with a dog leg over looking the lake for more windows. got a bad batch of bahr paint for the ceiling which took weeks to dry and added defects to the float job areas bubbling out tape in places etc.  next time im going with a light textured sand paint. the sun light reflecting off the lake makes it even worse. probably not many notice it but it pisses me off.

    Also many people like to add their own colors and end up painting anyways so its a waste.

    Wish I could afford meat but sadly cant anymore. I remember when I used to be middle class and could buy a brisket every once in awhile. Sadly they are $100 even at costco now.

    Flat paint hides imperfections better than eggshell or satin.

    Also, flat paint is a great primer for anything you put on top of it.  The glossier the paint, the worse job it does sticking to the new paint.

    Oh, I figured since you were pinching pennies you went with the smallest version, which is what i priced out.  My bad.  You went all out.  Guess things aren't as bad for you as you want us to believe.

    Spent $475 at costco yesterday and my fridge is still half empty. Only meat I got
    was ground turkey. Briskets were $80 and up and the 3 packs of ribs that used to be $20-25 are now $50 and up. I make well into 6 figures and cant bring myself to spend that kind of money on meat. Feel bad for the people making minimum wage that cant afford any meat now.

    That must be it.

    Why have meat prices gone up relative to the election?
