This past week has been full of big ticket purchases for our new home. Since we bought a foreclosure, the home came with zero appliances. We were able to negotiate the asking price to make up for the lack of appliances, which was great. So we headed out to ApplianceSmart this past weekend and picked out all of our appliances! We were able to get a few 'scratch & dent' pieces that had minor dents on the sides (which will be hidden by our kitchen cabinets), so we got a great deal on everything! We also got a frontload washer and dryer set for a steal! Yay!

When we moved out of our last place, we decided to sell all of our funiture because we figured we would want different furniture at our new place. I'm so glad we did, because our taste has totally changed since then. We happened to stumble upon this awesome Pottery Barn couch that was a clearanced-out floor model, so we got it for a mega deal... Score! This is a great tip when shopping for furniture: Ask when the next season's items will be coming in. Stores will want to move out the old stuff to make room for the new. We went there the day before their Spring furniture arrived and literally half of the store's furniture was on clearance.

The pillows to go on the couch were also clearanced out (we actually didn't get the size pictured, we got the big 24x24 ones), and the lampshade, glass mugs & votives were from Target. I'm working on accumulating all of our basic, neutral pieces before I start buying all of the fun, colorful, decorative stuff.

Now on to picking out paint colors!! Stay tuned....
