Hello, How is your day going?
I have been pretty busy the last few days.
Chris and I just bought a new living room group, that we love! We bought a sofa and love seat, coffee and end tables, a new entertainment center and a 42 inch wide screen.
We are just in hog heaven over here in Kansas!
Our only problem now is trying to get it set up so the digital tv will come in.
Chris and I haven't had new furniture in over ten years, and sadly all of our furniture was pretty worn out. Since we live a very frugel lifestyle, we buy in bulk, recycle, barter and so on, we knew we had to find something economical that wouldn't kill our budget.
So we set out with a budget of $3000.00 for an entire living room.
As some of you know a television can run $1700, so we knew we were going to have issues...
Luckily for us there is a great new and used furniture store in Hutchinson called Mike's TV and Appliances!!! Chris and I have been going in there for weeks trying to see if there would be any buys in their used section...and Friday there was!!!!
The first thing we saw was a beautiful sage colored sofa set....for $960.00, then I saw the 42 inch tv, it was marked $899.00, the entertainment center was $399.00 and the coffee table set was $478.00
I managed to get an additional $150.00 off because we know the owners, so the total was only $2560.oo We managed to save $440.00!!!!! I think we rock...and roll.....lol
Some people are against used furniture and that is ok, but our family believes in buying used and garage sales and thrift store buying. It has served us really well. I do not think we have paid full price for anything in over 15 years!!!! We save money and get what we want. Sometimes it takes time, and a ton of paitence, but it is so worth it. We have no debt other than our house...That is pretty darn good if you ask me!!!
I have no recipes for you today, just what I have eaten lately!!!! I haven't done a post like this for awhile, and I think it is about time!!!
Bean Taco's, ignore the paper plate
This is not the pizza I ate, but it looked similar.....I ate deep dish vegetable pizza with red pepper flakes....So darn good , I scarfed it before I could take a picture!!!!!! I am making it again this week!!!!
Chili Macaroni with vegan gourmet cheese and tofutti sour cream....
I am going to start adding my weekly menu's, so look for them soon!!!!!
