The day draws closer and closer. The day that we leave apartment living forever and move into our first house. We are hoping to be in the house at the end of July.
We've decided that our old, broken-down, second-hand apartment stuff won't be good enough for the new place. And, in all honesty, it won't.
We are keeping our couch and loveseat, and adding slip covers until we can afford all new. We are keeping our bed and two beds that I found at an estate sale. That's about it.
Justin and I made a list of necessities. Things that we would need starting on the day we move in. Then, we ranked them.
Obviously, our first two big items, we agreed on immediately. Refridgerator and washer/dryer set.
But, after that, it got tricky. For some reason, Justin thought we would need an entertainment center before a dining room table and chairs. In fact, he ranked the table and chairs 7 out of 7.
Interesting, isn't it? Particularly since we had the conversation a week prior about how we needed to start eating every meal at the table and not in front of the television. Especially in the brand new house that doesn't have any stains or spills in it. Yet.
Yes, this is the house that Tractorhead built. It sits on almost 2 acres, so we will definitely be adding a lawn mower to the list of necessities. But, we are hoping to wait until next summer to buy one. We are taking volunteers to help out with the yard work, so feel free to do so in the comment section.
Justin is meeting with the banker tomorrow to find out exactly how much more we can do.
Right now, I'm hoping for bricks. Maybe some walls- yeah, walls would be nice.
