You guys can you believe I'm down to six days? It's finally sinking in after spending the day packing and pitching. My poor dog hardly has any room to move around. There are boxes everywhere! I am very happy with our progress and may even be able to spend some of my day off on Monday shopping. So it's a good thing I didn't get anything at Kohls because my sister has a 30% off coupon that she's giving me tomorrow. My next trip there has to be very productive. Any suggestions on things to look for? Here's my list so far:
- hand towels for downstairs bathroom
- towels for guest bathroom
- shower curtain, soap dispenser, etc... for guest bath if I like something enough to buy it
- maybe a rug for the kitchen and/or mud room
- decorative items
I'm just trying to think if there's anything else I can accomplish while I'm there.
We had our taxes done today and will be getting a decent refund which means I can get some furniture sooner! Yay! We're also contemplating custom blinds again. I'm still torn with that one. To be continued...
#6 - New Everything
So this one is rather obvious, but I'm so excited that everything will be brand new. There is such a peace of mind that comes along with knowing that we won't need to worry about a furnace, water heater, or roof for quite a while. As you drive to our plan you go through a HUGE Ryan development that was built in late 90's and early 2000's. We heavily considered buying in that plan. We could have actually got a bigger house for our money, but it was knowing that some of those big ticket items were already 10 years old that made building even more attractive. Not only is it all big items, but every little thing is brand new. I love that. I also love knowing that we get to create the house's history. So cool!
