Since we’ve moved here we did change almost all of our furniture, some by choice but mostly because we had to. On this side of the border, unlike the States, we don’t leave appliances behind; we buy some even when living in a rental place and move with them. When we sold our house we had managed to sell all our appliances to the new owners who didn’t have any. Hubby often says: "Moving wasn't that expensive, but replacing all of our furniture sure was!"
Since a big part of our condo will be re-painted and everything will be freshly cleaned we decided to bite the bullet and also “finish” the upstairs floor. Our bedroom and office didn’t have any light fixtures other than the “jobber” lights, so over the weekend we went out and purchased fixtures to finish off those rooms.
We also decided to take a bigger chunk out of that bullet and replace that thirty plus years old dresser we’ve been using as a TV unit for the last year and a half. We (as in Hubby) knew what we wanted, but really couldn’t afford it.
Good thing we didn't have to directly pay for the repairs.
