4 years, 2 months.
Tomorrow afternoon we are scheduled to close on our new house. I’m definitely looking forward to getting that part over with and feeling that sense of closure… in a good way, of course.
This week at American Signature Furniture we purchased our couch at and matching chair for our bonus room; we had set aside savings for quite a while now to help cover purchases like these so we wouldn’t have to go in debt to buy them.
We also stopped by Family Leisure to check out pool tables. What started as wishful thinking and sort of a joke on my part a few weeks back has been evolving into a plan that may truly become a reality:
To get a pool table for our living room; therefore avoiding having to pay all that money for another couch and matching furniture for downstairs.
The bonus room will be the only room with a TV.
So it’s important to me that for the downstairs, our family truly has space to have fun and hang out. A pool table could facilitate that for years to come.
Otherwise, I suspect the living room downstairs will just end up a room we simply walk through to get to the kitchen. I don’t want that, because that’s pretty much how things ended up in our townhouse.
Granted, we’re looking to pay off this house paid off as soon as possible. So if and when we are officially ready to move a pool table into our living room, my ideal plan is to find a gently used one on Craig’s List that’s basically free because the people just want it moved out of their house.
When it’s all said and done, the pool table may never happen.
But for now, it’s actually the most practicial and economical plan for our family. We’re not in a huge hurry to fully furnish our house.
We shall see…
