MY MONEY PER­SON­AL­ITY: Se­cu­rity-seeker GOAL: To res­tore and re­uphol­ster two an­tique chairs that were passed down to me from my grand­mother

VALUE OF GOAL: R6 000

WHY I MIGHT (OR MIGHT NOT) REACH MY GOAL: I re­cently did some re­search into the fur­ni­ture restora­tion process, which ended in dis­ap­point­ment. I looked at how much it would cost me and re­alised that this project would have to hold off un­til my next raise. I then came across two guys at a Jo’burg mar­ket who re­cently started restor­ing old fur­ni­ture. They have made stun­ning things so far and be­cause they’re new kids on the block they quoted me (for a full re­uphol­ster and restora­tion) at a price I can af­ford. It might still take a few months of sav­ing but I’m pos­i­tive I’ll achieve this goal in 2014. Watch this space!
