When Did Furniture Get So Expensive
Yet another beautiful day in Paradise. A bit cool at 42 degrees when we first awoke but as soon as the sun came up things began to warm up quickly.
First thing this morning we recieved a verbal summary of yesterday’s house inspection. There were several really minor areas of concern but nothing major. We contacted our realator about what was shared with us and he assured us each item would be addressed and corrected. So the house is still a go.
Time to go furniture shopping. We had already decided what we wanted to purchase and what our budget would be. With our list in hand we headed to
In the past we had found that their prices were reasonable and their customer service was top notch.
Through the double doors we went into acres of furniture. We had been here earlier in the week and already had a really good idea of what we wanted.
This will be our living room set minus the coffee table.
We’ll add these chair side tables to our living room set.
This will be our bedroom set. We also got a new mattress.
We were also able to purchase our washer and dryer.
Then came the time of reckoning. Can you tell by the smile on Lisa’s face that her commission was going to be substantial! We haven’t purchased furniture in over 30 years so we were a bit shocked by the fact that one needed a second mortgage to pay for it. Nah, not really. We were pleased that we were able to purchase all that we wanted and it was all within our budget.
When will it be delivered? Probably in June when we are back home for a couple of weeks before going back up to UF in Jacksonville. We’re getting there.
That was our day on The Road of Retirement. We’re one more step closer to being happy home owners. So much to do and so little time. We must have been off our rockers to start all this at this point in time. But that’s us, seize the moment.
