I don't think I mentioned earlier, but we got the apartment we applied for. Yay! I'll post a picture. =)
In all fairness, I do have a different weakness than buying household goods. I have an extreme weakness for books and picture frames. At any given time I have about 4 books that are waiting to be read and when I get a chance to bust them out, I'll read all 4 within a month or less. Then it's off to the bookstore to buy more, so many good books in the world, so little time. Here is a picture from my latest book shopping trip that I took today. It's a good thing that the store was going out of business and I saved 60-70% on all the books shown. My receipt said I saved a grand total of $123.68!!!
Anyway, since we've basically renting a room in a home for the last 2 1/2 years rather than having our own apartment, we have to start from the beginning and stock up on things like kitchen supplies, furniture, appliances, and all that good stuff. I can honestly say that I am having so much fun buying stuff for the house. It's funny because when I got word that I was going to get the rest of my financial aid money, the first thing I thought was that I would get to buy more stuff for the apartment and I get to buy my hunny a nice gift for our anniversary. =) I didn't think once about buying clothes, shoes, or anything like that. Just getting nice things for the home that I could be proud of when we have guests over.
