Replacing Compact Flourescents

I've begun replacing compact fluorescent bulbs around the house because they're burning out. As I'm replacing them, I find that the soft white LEDs now far surpass CFs in both brightness and pleasantness. Those holder bulbs had been either dimming for years, or had always dimmer than they seemed. Either way, they're out the outs as the far more affordable LEDs are available.

When we moved in four years ago (4.5 years?), LEDs were still expensive, so my study bulbs cost me $30-$40 each. Now they would cost $10 each.

There's a few noteworthy places that the LEDs must replace: the bedroom lights. Those higher lights just don't do their job, and those CFs have to go. There's also a CFC in the lamp by the table.

I want to replace the long florescents in the kitchen, but that's not happening anytime soon. Too much wiring. I should get practice rewiring the basement lights first before I head upstairs.

I'm in a similar spot. I'm finally at a place where I have money available to invest in such things at a time when I need them. I love the idea of not having to mess with the awkward fixtures in the kitchen again for YEARS. And the living room light on the dimmer switch can finally have something better than old-style light bulbs.
