When we moved here we had a lot of "stuff" but other than our beds, no furniture. There was no fridge or stove, the only appliance was an old microwave. My parents got us a fridge and stove.
The old tenants left behind a side table, coffee table and TV stand. Our first couple of dinners were at the coffee table.
Since then wh has found, for free, a matching sofa, loveseat and chair (which creepy enough has almost the exact same pattern/colour) as my old sofa that got damaged, a kitchen table & 4 chair set (beautiful wood), A 53" projection TV (Nemo is HUGE!!!), a washing machine and a water cooler.
All I need now is a dryer lol
My parents are totally thrilled and a bit jealous, our TV is larger than theirs (so is my oven so Thanksgiving will be held here lol).
Everyone had upgraded so they were giving away the old stuff which has suited us great. I'll be hooking up the washer today (is it weird that I am really excited to be able to do laundry?, I have a clothes line outside I can't wait to use too).
So other than the fridge and stove, everything we have is second hand but I am loving it all!!!
Free stuff rocks lol
