I have not even been looking for anything lately. But this Saturday on our way back to my house my sister and I noticed a couch and loveseat sitting in a driveway with a sign that said $200. Well, thats a pretty good deal, one worth stopping and checking out at least. My sister and I got out and looked them over and sat on the couch to test it out. Not bad. Nice neutral, fairly dark fabric (wouldn't show dirt much), solid, not much wear and tear. I liked them alot.
Well, I went home and told my husband about them. But I had it set in my mind that it was no big deal. We just made a rather large purchase (we used our stimulus check to buy a memory foam bed) and Isaac may not want to fork over another $200 on "new" couches when the ones we have function just fine. I kind of saw it as a long shot but one worth trying for. Anyway, we loaded up the boys in the wagon and walked down the street to let Isaac get a look at the sofa set. We sat, let the Nate climb on them a little, talked spending limits, etc. And finally Isaac went and talked to the homeowner and he took our offer of $150! Yeah!
I love the "new" sofa set! It looked alright in the guys driveway, but it looks great in my living room! This is a picture of the loveseat. I'm way more excited about getting this great deal then I would be about spending alot of money on an actual new couch. I think God rewarded us for our patience. Thank you!
