Furniture together

I've just put together the two units I purchased.

The low line tv unit took 6 hours and intense concentration and still I have slightly wonky drawers.


The display unit took 2.5 hours this morning. No wonky drawers!

I am so proud of myself. I have a blistered hand but the units look great.

I am just starting to take the stuff down from the old unit which will be put into the garage on Saturday morning. At this stage I am surrounded by furniture. I am feeling a little overwhelmed.

This afternoon I will purchase the surround sound unit that I have promised myself. I am not going to spend a huge amount of money on it as I can't afford to do that and save for my own property.

Speaking of which I am very excited that by April next year I will have 10% saved. Woo Hoo! I am starting to look at auctions and properties. It is quite daunting going to auctions hence my turning up to a few. I am starting to get a good idea of what bang you can get for your dollar. I am trying, like many in the world, to work out if our market is back on the increase or will further decrease. There are so many conflicting views out it is enough to make your head spin.

I contemplated moving but if I am planning on moving into my own property that won't be happening - I can't believe the cost just to move from one place to another..........Ridiculous. I love this saving idea.......

Enjoy your day.

Personally I think our markets have a little more to fall before they stabilize. Hopefully soon though. I think putting together furniture is so fun. I love to see the finished product!
