Allocating the money
I notice a few web sites that have percentages that you should spend of your total budget on any one item. For example, I have seen several places where 48% of your budget should be cabinets. I have also seen 29% and 35%. The problem with every list I've seen is that it is incomplete.
One list is missing backsplash, another labor. How could you not include labor?!?
Anyway I am hoping someone here has a better way, or could share a formula to help us get a better handle on where we should be spending our money.
