I hate moving. Like really really HATE it. In the past two years, I have moved not once, not twice, not even three times. FIVE TIMES. I went from my college house, back to my parents house, to an apartment with my husband, to a second apartment with my husband, to finally our first home together.
In all of these moves, I have tried really hard to make each of these places feel like mine. Each new place came with new possibilities and new possibilities meant money. Which, honestly, I didn’t have a lot of. What can I say, I had champagne taste on beer budget! This meant scouring craigslist, garage sales and my favorite place of all, Goodwill.
Most of the furniture that I own have been pre-loved by someone else and whatever the circumstances, have fallen into my hands. I have reupholstered, painted and stained many of these things, but some have come to me in near perfect condition.
For everything that I didn’t buy, trade, or pick up off a curb, I always look for sales at some of my favorite stores, Target, Ikea, Pier 1, and Crate and Barrel. I find that as annoying as signing up for those subscription emails can be, sometimes they can be helpful as you get exclusive sales and coupons.
Well that’s all I’ve got for now! Keep checking back for my latest post or subscribe for updates! Thanks for reading friends!
