Of course I had furniture when I was in college, but it was literally not worth the trouble to bring it with me when I rented a little house from my cousin’s aunt. She is moving to Myrtle Beach, but does not want to get rid of her house yet. I would really like to save up the money for a down payment, because it makes a lot of sense to build equity in a house. At the moment I am looking at a buyers guide for leather furniture and trying to figure out how to properly get a good deal on the furniture I need. It is obvious that you are not getting a great deal if you buy stuff that turns into trash within a couple of years. You want to get stuff that your kids would be able to take off to college or to their first place. That is when you get a good deal on furniture, when it lasts more than one generation.
Obviously that sort of deal might really be painful in the short term, because you are not going to get quality and long lasting service from the cheapest stuff on the showroom floor. You will have to pay more than you might want to pay to get the truly good deal. I would want to do a good deal of homework before I make the decision, but right now I am sitting on the floor in front of my TV. That is not so bad for the short term, but it is something that you want to do something about. I need to get the money saved up for it first, although I think my mom is going to give me a couple of odds and ends to help out a little bit.
