A New Adventure
I am moving. Again. But, like when I moved to Maine, I am looking forward to the adventure. I love meeting new people and being in new places. This time I will be in Rhode Island.
Some of you may remember my moving problems I had when I moved from Idaho to Maine. Quick recap - the moving company who was to deliver all of our belongings "went out of business" and ending up dumping everything we own in a storage facility near our home in Idaho, yet they still took our $5000. And that's where our stuff sits today. We can't afford to have it shipped out, starving author and all. :)
Anyway, we were fortunate that our house in Maine was furnished so it wasn't a huge issue until now. We have nothing. It's like we are newly married except worse becuase at least when we got married we were given a lot of things like cleaning supplies, appliances, towels, etc. I thought about getting married again. Maybe those who came to our wedding the first time won't remember that we're already married?
Actually it was kind of fun starting over. My husband and I went shopping this last weekend looking for one deal after another. Cheap became our motto. No point buying nice things when we have a warehouse of nice things...back in Idaho. We managed to find bigger items, dressers, beds and couches at flea markets and garage sales. This week I will focus on the little things.
So here's my question. Where can I get the most bang for my buck for all the little crap? I don't have time to do the garage sale thing again. I was thinking Ikea?
