Footing the Bill with Craigslist

Sold. Nearly my entire living room. Well, maybe I exaggerate a little - but, we did sell a sleeper sofa, 2 loveseats, and a wingback chair from that room. The sleeper sofa and loveseat combo was nearly 10 years old, so we didn't get much for that. But, adding up all of these items and a few odds and ends that we've sold on craigslist, we've saved up enough to cover all of the exterior paint for a project later this spring and about half of the new carpet expense.

This loveseat was hard to part with. We're beginning our remodel in the family room, though, and we needed to decide what to do with all of the furniture during the torn-apart-and-not-being-put-back-together-very-quickly stage. We opted to sell enough to allow us to move the family room furniture to the living room. This loveseat wasn't going to fit in well with any of our future rooms (it had been in our previous master bedroom), so - sold. $300 more toward the new carpet.

Speaking of the carpet, the old peed on carpet is GONE!!! We have nothing but cement and carpeting tack strips in the family room right now. Echoes like crazy, but it's extremely encouraging to see something happening! I'll try to post some photos within the next few days.

Until then, have a great Easter/Resurrection Sunday weekend, everyone :)

Oh, congratulations on selling everything. Sometimes I think I'm the only person in the world who isn't selling or buying on craigslist! I'm looking forward to seeing your progress.
