1. We need food and a place to store it. We didn't finance a refrigerator through Ryan Homes- we wanted to purchase one and pay it off right away. This is the one I have got my eye on
2. In the city- there are plenty of laundromats. This is how I am surviving until the move- my dryer broke 2 months ago. I need a new washer and dryer. I checked Consumer Reports for the best washer and dryer that met these criteria: quiet, energy efficient, and large capacity. This top load washer and dryer from LG with its 5.2 capacity fits the bill.
3 The bedrooms- we need new bedroom furniture. I will focus on the beds for now. The current plan is to give the bunk beds to my youngest son, purchase a full size bed for my oldest son. purchase a king size bed for us and give the queen mattress over to the guest room. Whew. Now I have purchased at some big name furniture company- twice. Particle board and plywood is they offered. I decided to go Amish. This book has been my bible. True Amish furniture is still made the way THEY use to make Grandmom's furniture . The pieces that get passed from generation to generation is what I am after.
4. Let's eat- getting a table for my hard earned morning room is also a must. I am looking for an "antique" type dining set for this area. This will be one of the most used spaces in my home. I want something that already looks like it been through a little something- so that if my boys add a few more knicks it will just add to its character. I will also get this from the Amish- did I neglect to mention that buying from the Amish means that my furniture will be custom and handmade. This is similar to the look that I am after
5. My last course of action before slowing down my spending spree is to purchase window treatments. Of course I have a found a place that will do free design and make my treatments for me. I can't wait to shop here!
