New furnishings whenever you move?
I am in the middle of affluenza. Upcoming move has us evaluating our posssessions: what stays, what goes, what do we need. Typically, around here anyway, people unload last seasons clothes(even though there is plenty of life left in them), buy all new, too small clothes from same sex sibling given away and not handed down to other child-ditto household goods. It seems that many are perpetually re-doing their household furnishings,
While I did acquire some HH furnishings 2 years ago when I vacated our marital home, I first addressed needs, then creature comforts. Most was obtained on the second hand market. Funds saved up for in order to purchase new items.
As we anticipate a move in a few weeks, a list is being created of needs: silverware drawer divider (going to check if one is built in first), a long dresser for DD, a shower caddy gizmo for storing shampoo near the shower head in the bathroom. So far, that's it.
Once we're settled, I'll post photos of our new rental, but those who followed my move 2 years ago will note that they see the same items we have here, moved to the new location. It's definitly a "use what you've got" theme. Some items may seem "new" such as curtains-the LL is leaving some behind, I have some in storage, I will refashion some, I will sew some (hopefully from my stash).
