Apartment Fixer Uppers: When to Call it Quits?

Apartment Fixer Uppers: When to Call it Quits?

Ideally, within the first month you move into a place you've done all the painting you need to do and have at least started on more time-consuming tasks. That's in an ideal world. In truth, we still have a long list of things we'd like to do to our apartment, but we're quickly approaching the end of our lease and are wondering if it is worth putting any extra in if we might be moving in a few months...

So we're wondering, when do you throw in the towel on a place? Is it any time past the halfway point (six months for a year-long lease) or is it up to the last day of your habitation? We know it's good to live for the moment, but couldn't it also be considered a waste of money? Give us your thoughts.
