With the garage , though, you trade out a space that is usable for one thing (storing cars, boxes, etc.) for a space that is usable for another thing (living). Even if you don't mind getting rid of this storage room , subsequent buyers of your home probably will mind.

(Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump’s trade war is barging into bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms all over America.

Trump’s initial tariffs on $34 billion of Made-in-China goods, which took effect on July 6, stayed clear of popular household products. But as he looks to penalize nearly half of the $505 billion the U.S. imported from China last year, it’s getting harder to shield the public.

His plan to impose a 10 percent tax on $200 billion of China-made products threatens to give U.S. consumers a bruising in every corner of the home. The tariffs may go into effect after public consultations end on Aug. 30.

Dining Room

Feeding time is set to become dearer. Knives and forks and other essentials would be taxed, while Chinese tilapia -- a popular item sold by Walmart Inc. and other retailers -- is among the seafood on the list. Washing it all down with apple juice or some Chinese wine will cost an extra 10 percent, too.


Whether it’s whizzing up a smoothie or cooking for the family, preparing dinner may get pricier. Refrigerators and freezers are among Made-in-China appliances being targeted. And the ingredients Trump wants to tax read like a stir-fry recipe: abalone, sea urchins, garlic, bamboo shoots and dried mushrooms, not to mention monosodium glutamate, the flavor-enhancer commonly known as MSG. Don’t forget the chopping knife: it’s on Trump’s to-tax list, too.

Deputies: Homeless man set fire to Auburn home with baby inside

  Deputies: Homeless man set fire to Auburn home with baby inside A homeless man was arrested on arson charges after he started a fire inside an Auburn-area home where a mother and her baby were inside, according to the Placer County Sheriff's Office. Witnesses told investigators that a man, identified as Dylan R. Fain, 25, poured fuel on the door of the condominium laundry room in the 11000 block of Garnet Way on July 3, deputies said. Fain ran from the area after he lit the fire in the laundry room, which is located under the child's bedroom, officers said. Cal Fire firefighters quickly extinguished the fire before there was significant damage. The mother and her baby were able to escape the blaze uninjured. Detectives and evidence technicians investigated the scene and were able to identify Fain as the arson suspect, according to officers. Deputies found Fain, who is a transient out of the Auburn area, and arrested him a few hours later. He is being held in the Placer County Jail on charges of arson of an inhabited dwelling and child endangerment. His bail is set at $250,000.

Dog House

Legend has it that Harry Truman once said anyone who wants a friend in Washington should buy a dog. That might become a pricier proposition at Target Corp. because of planned tariffs on China-made dog leashes, collars, muzzles and harnesses. That could increase the prices of the 23 leashes for sale at Target by as little as 70 cents and as much as $3, if they are from China. Kitty isn’t exempt, either, with the president proposing a levy on cat food from China.


The tariffs raise the cost of imported spark plugs, piston engines, rear-view mirrors and other Chinese-made parts for autos and bicycles. And the golf bag you’ve stashed in the garage along with your baseball mitt, batting glove and other gear from retailers like Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc.? They will be subject to new tariffs if they’re from China. The levies could add between $1 and $60 to the cost of baseball mitts at Dick’s. (The retailer’s website doesn’t disclose the country of origin for the gloves.)

­­Drying off after a shower with a fluffy towel from Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. will cost you more if it’s Chinese-made terry toweling or a similar woven fabric. Personal grooming for guys could become pricier since hair clippers and electric shavers are on the new list, as are items like badger hair and boar bristle that are used in old-fashioned shaving brushes. Among the products targeted at women are Chinese-made lipsticks and makeup.
