Before we left for Florida, we had a garage sale so that we didn't have to take some of our furniture and random nicknacks. It was a HUGE success! As a whole, the sale made about $600, but some of that was for Preston's mom and cousin. So we got about $500 :D That was now our furniture budget when we got to Florida. I have been thrilled with what we've been able to get on our little budget. So thrilled that I just have to share with everyone :) So here's the pictures & prices so you can get as excited as me about all these craigslist bargains!!
hide-a-bed couch: $100
This was a bit more pricey of a purchase, but they were asking $200, so we still got a good deal :D I LOVE this couch. So comfortable, good lookin, and it's a bed! Awesome.
this was only used twice and their son hated it. So, lucky Brayden gets a practically new one for half the price.
Can you believe it?? 15 BUCKS!!! Equally as unbelievable is that we drove this home on top of our car. . . it was quite the sight.
The desk isn't great, but it will work. The bookshelves are is great condition and really sturdy. Plus, they look great with our computer cart (purchased before we left for $10 at Target). The couch is in great shape too, but unfortunately wreaked of smoke until we sprayed it down several times with Vamoose. It really works!
The table came with 2 leaves and 4 chairs. Plus, she threw in a couple random plastic bins, a rug and a kitchen cabinet.
Lawn mower: $40
TOTAL FOR EVERYTHING: $510
Now, that's what I call bargain shopping!!
