today we bought furniture. Why?
1) we are going to ship a container over to Ireland anyway.
2) we don’t have enough stuff to fill a container.
3) some furniture items are much less expensive here than in Ireland.
4) we have a discount warehouse near us.
for all of these reasons, we bought a couch, a futon frame and a kitchen table/chairs. It’s all beautiful and we paid less than $900! The couch even has recliners in it and the table extends… hooray!
