Why did I start this challenge? It’s kept me on my toes but it is really hard to keep track of things.
Stuff is insidious.
We received free t-shirts for our big walk and they were out of Chris’s size so I thought it was a good chance to get two workout tops I could wear while pregnant. Then I promptly forgot about their entry into my wardrobe until I started working on this tally of ins and outs.
Things should pick up a bit with the numbers here because we’re moving.
Moving is a fantastic time to get rid of things you haven’t been using. I’m actually excited about the move process because it will give me a chance to look through the boxes of household goods we brought over but haven’t used because we’ve been renting furnished flats.
I’m expecting the out number to skyrocket in the next month.
I’m also expecting the in number to skyrocket in the next month because: we’re moving into an unfurnished home. So I’m starting from scratch. Scary.
More about the move later on. It was a hard decision. Change location and give up the sea views and an easy walk to work for my husband or drive our son to school most days and probably get a newer car. We debated it for a few months and then spent even longer looking for something in the five block area we wanted to lived.
Now, any tips on furnishing a home from scratch? I’m watching the ads here like a hawk. Seems coffee tables are easy to come by but bunk beds, small sofas and king size beds are in hot demand. While our budget won’t allow me to invest in ultra modern and minimalist pieces, I think I can still work some fashion in with a good sofa, nice bedding and a whole lot of Annie Sloan chalk paint.
