The Best Deal

I was browsing our local classified ads online this past week searching for some used furniture. I really wanted an armoire for the living room and/or a sofa for the playroom/family room/office (so I don't have to sit on the cold floor to play with Liam). The family room has been empty since a week before Liam's birth when we finally finished remodeling the front living room. So we moved all our furniture to the living room where it should be and all that was left in the back room was our cherry desk (and now all of Liam's toys).

So, I got a generous amount of spending money as Christmas gifts this year. I thought with the money I received that I could find a decent used couch. I did quite a bit of shopping on craigslist and KSL. I couldn't believe this sofa sleeper I ran into! It was only $100 for a sleeper? I contacted the folks selling it and confirmed a time to come look at it/pick it up. It was better in person than in the photo. It's in great shape, the plaid design is great and it was only $100!!!! I was pleased with myself! No buyer's remorse whatsoever!

Craigslist rocks! I've sold things and bought things from it. Like the black couch and loveseat in our top living room- $100 total. And the big corner desk downstairs-$50.
Good find Gina!

Ooooh. I have sofa envy!
We're using a 15 year-old futon sofa in our living room. I've been refusing to purchase a 'real sofa' until the kids stopped jumping/fighting/puking/peeing all over the furniture. But if $100 can buy a pretty plaid sofa, I may reconsider this stance.
And I LURVE that rocking horse!

awesome! We bought our couches for $50. Granted, they matched the house, but are b*tt ugly. I think this year we'll finally be able to afford something a little better, but we'll see.
