Include Clean Up Time in Estimates/Budgets

without comments

When asked to give a quote on an assignment, always include clean up time.  Unless a system is very well structured, pre-meditates your new requirements, and limits your work within a narrow scope of exceptionally well-defined parameters, then adding new code usually means moving old code around, which in turn creates messiness.  Remember to account for time it takes to clean up new and old code after implementing a feature.
