What Running A Home Costs

Remember that Taurus you bought for $8,000? (Of course you do; we keep mentioning it.) Remember how it really cost you $19,000 to run it for 4 years?

Well, when it comes to costs, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet – houses cost vastly more to run, even though they are stationary (except in certain parts of Kansas during tornado season. There’s no place like home).
