I wouldn’t go with champagne or similar colours because it might look like you tried and failed to match the dress colour? What do navy blue and burgundy look like with your complexion?

Meh-quality can work. I have some pans basically made out of tin foil; I just have to have very low heat and cook slowly with them. My cast iron skillet and griddle pan were both from TK Maxx (you guys have TJ Maxx but it’s the same company? I think?) for about £15. Read more

I guess you have to be really brutal here - this is the reason that house is affordable, right? What would you have to change about your lifestyle or belongings would have to change to live there (e.g. passing on pets, furniture...)?

Might be worth seeing if it’s a unit you can replace yourself; I managed on a 2002 car and I’m no mechanic (though quite good with assembling furniture and other tinkering things)
