I realize those last two are probably the most pricey and give me the most pause. One of the houses for sale down the street has dropped its price by nearly 20 thousand and they made all kinds of big improvements - siding, full bathroom & kitchen renovations, etc. I'm sure they're not making any of that money back.
At least I can do most of the items on the list myself or by enticing some friends with the promise of beer/pizza/cookies/babysitting.
