Thank You and Garage Saling.
Here is the list of things that we need for her 1st furnished apartment.
So far we have spent-
$84.81 at Goodwill
$75.99 at Dollar Tree
$3.50 at garage sales
We have spent $164.30 so far. I'm torn on the amount of money that we have spent at the Dollar Tree. I know that some people HATE it and others LOVE it. There is never a middle ground on the Dollar Tree. We may have been able to get some of the things we bought at the Dollar Tree for less than $1 at garage sales. It was nice though just to pick up matching things like bowls, containers, pot holders.She also got the beloved popsicle maker. Why do I have the feeling that alcohol will be added to her popsicles? She loves it almost as much as she loves her "new" chair!
I think that we will be able to collect everything for her 1st apartment for under $200. That is unless she finds some more odd looking porn furniture. Her roommate is also collecting for the apartment. They have been emailing each other the lists but I have the odd feeling that they will have duplicates. Oh well, the two of them managed to live in a tiny dorm with tons of stuff. This apartment will seem like an empty airplane hanger compared to the dorm.
I just wish that Anna had taken pictures of the entire apartment. It would give us a better idea of what will and won't fit. The thing is Ms. Anna went and looked at the apartment and then sold us on the idea. She had me at "$3000 a year cheaper."
Have a great day and thanks for coming to see me,
