I spent about 2-4K/yr; I replaced sliding glass doors with double pane french doors (and took 3 weeks to paint them); I put in an outdoor patio on the north side with a fountain (very soothing); over-oven microwave, recessed lighting, low-flow toilets; in short, things I've always wanted to change but didn't have the time to coordinate when working. It helps retain the re-sale value and makes it a nicer place to live.
