LET’S TALK MONEY: Some home improvement tips, suggestions | Business

Hi Taylor: I’ve got about $2,000 set aside for home improvements and I’m trying to figure out the best way to spend it.

I want all sorts of things like a new TV and a new couch, but I wonder if something like new windows or some sort of structural work could be a better choice in the long run. Any thoughts about the best way to put my money to work? — Marcia
