Subject: The IKEA House
Do you love IKEA? You can now buy a whole house from them for $86,500.
The 745 sq. ft., 1BR/1BA is stocked with all things IKEA from the kitchen appliances, to cabinets and counters. The bathroom has IKEA sinks and storage, and the bedroom closets are all built around the retailer's closet system. Check it out here.
Don't worry, you won't need a plastic baggie of wood dowels and pressed metal wrenches to put the house together. It is delivered in a couple of pieces and assembled on the spot.
What do you think? Would you buy a house from IKEA?
All the best,
Subject: A Cure for Hiccups
13-year-old Mallory Kievman has a cure for the hiccups. She says she discovered it in the kitchen trying to stop her own. You can read the article here.
The cure is a lollipop made from apple cider vinegar and sugar. It reportedly works by triggering the nerves in your throat and mouth that are responsible for the hiccup reflex. She plans to put them on the market this summer.

Did you see the article
about the 107 year old who has been retired for 41 years and is still paying his own bills?
His lessons are: thrift, invest in real estate, use debt well, work even when jobs are hard to find, save and invest conservatively, and stay healthy. I liked this.

Subject: No 'Throne Room'
One of Britain's most historic country mansions has gone on the market for the bargain price of $3.8 million.

Just more proof that buyers want updated baths! I hope you're having a great day - let me know if you need anything.
