I must admitt...now I get it.
When I was first on the board, we had an old vehicle and a very old house. I didn't understand all the people in debt with credit cards. I had no desire to fix my old cars and house or buy things to make my house pretty.
Guess what I want to do now.....buy buy buy since we purchased the house and the scary part is, we aren't even in it until June or July. There is this home decor part of my grocery store and I visit it all the time looking for deals. I have a bin at the house for my new house treasures. I have found a bunch of new tea towels on clearance, a new shower curtain etc etc etc. I have never had a brand new kitchen and I will have more bathrooms now.
Plus....we bought a new tv at a boxing day sale. We have promised ourselves a new couch and love seat. We only have love seat right now we got for free along the way. Plus... I have never had 4 matching kitchen chairs and we will have an island that needs bar stools. One thing at a time!!!
Oh my this is going to be an expensive year.
Not to mention all the things I will need when we move in there I don't even know about yet.
Must sort out my wants and needs!!
I get it now, I get it. I must figure out how to do this without going bananas and getting into credit card debt. I do have points on my grocery card I wil try to get odds and ends with. I actually have a lot of points. Perhaps if I get groceries with it once I can afford the bar stools or something. I must think outside the box here. I just don't have the time to shop for this. I must have my sister in the city looking for things for me!
has anyone purchased new or just gotten a new house to them and how did you handle this new feeling?
