Definitions of LIFETIME COST
Sort: Oldest first
The total cost incurred by possessing certain goods over their lifetime. This is added on to purchase cost. Maintenance, insurance, renovation, and the like are typical add-on costs. These extra costs may tally higher than the original cost of the goods itself when tallied together over the lifetime of the goods.
