Saving on apartment purchases

September 6th, 2012 at 11:45 am

Yesterday, DH's boss told him she is selling a light blue sectional couch for $100. We were originally looking at a sectional from Ikea that would have cost us $800. I was also browsing Craigslist for used sofas/sectionals, but I wasn't finding anything in good condition and for a decent price. So this came at a perfect time. Even with the fees for a storage facility for the next 49 days, it evens the price out.

She is also selling a queen sized mattress, frame, and box spring, but I'm not sure what the price is on that. We do need a new mattress though. Ours is foam, not memory foam, just foam, and it's killing my back. I'm really excited.

    What an opportunity! To find a clean mattress from someone you know is a bonus. I received a new mattress for my birthday from my husband and it was the best gift ever. While some people may laugh at the gift, I don't need anything, but this was a want and we are both happy. And cozy. And pain free!

    We had something similar happen prior to our recent (well, current) move -- a friend was getting rid of his nearly-new TempurPedic mattress due to his own move, and gave it to us! We could never have afforded it, and it was literally like new. It leads to a whole new sleeping experience, I wasn't sure if I would think so but I do. It's nice to have some insurance that it's from someone you know and trust, as well. Congrats!
