|Our "new" couch|
We've been waiting and waiting to get a couch that would fit our family. Our old way would be to go to a furniture store and just put one on credit, bring it home, and make payments. That's how we got our tables. By the way, those are the worst tables every that we bought at Mor Furniture. I'm embarrassed to even tell you what we paid.

Ivy needed just shirts and tights so we headed there. She has lots of skirts but they needed tights to make them more modest. Then she needed shirts. We grabbed about 2 weeks worth of new looking tights and shirts and headed out of that section. Kyle needed only regular shirts and Chaz and Ryan needed dress shirts. They also needed belts. As soon as our list was fulfilled we headed out.
Just as we were heading out we saw the couch we'd been looking for. It's hard being patient sometimes but patience paid off! We wanted a couch where we could easily wipe stuff off, was dark, and could fit our whole family. This was perfect. We grabbed it for $100! Before, we would had no problem putting a couple $1000 on credit to get something like this. Oh, the lessons we learn. If only we knew this stuff back when we could've bought used and saved the difference. Now it's out of survival but then we could've saved the difference.
Lessons learned the hard way I guess but better late than never, right? :)
