I have an outlet upstairs that only works if a certain outlet downstairs has something plugged in. No idea why and I neglected to get good ceiling pictures from downstairs.

Just go on the weekend or holiday if possible, but none of the subcontractors working on my house gave two shits that I was there. One even got me to help him because he was working alone and was tired of going up and down the stairs. Also, I have at least one cable box that they never trimmed out and I wouldn't have known if I didn't have the pictures. I didn't get to pick the locations, I bought too late and couldn't deviate from their plans.

You will use them many many times. You cannot have too many. Go in a logical order that makes sense to you and get walls, ceilings, floors, everything. Cover wiring, ducts, water lines, gas lines, sewer lines, light switches, and plugs. Pre wre some ethernet if you can, it's invaluable. Just take it to cable boxes or phone line boxes if nothing else. Run ducts from a few spots to the attic is handy also in case you might do ethernet or similar later.

Older and not Apple or Samsung. It finally dawned on me one day that there are other brands that aren't bad out there. With all the planned obsolescence, they all die after a few years anyway, so I don't choose to invest a lot.

All the phones I've ever owned added together does not equal $1000. But it's about what is important to each person and what they want to splurge on.

Better strategy, get a job working so much that you don't have time to spend it. You save even more and often forget to stop and think about how poor you really are. Win-win!
