Being a young mom means we met a little early, but I get to love them longer.

Some great deals!!

I was looking on craigslist today to see how much people were selling their dressers for (for the new baby). I just wanted to get an idea of prices, but I found something I cannot resist.. It is a bed, dresser, and changing table for $150. They are in great condition!! They were at the girls mom's house for when the baby went over there. They have barely been used. If we bought a new bed alone it would be at least $150, and a dresser another $75. I wasn't even going to get a changing table because I can just change the baby on my bed, but this changing table is on top of the dresser so it doesn't even take up any room.

I called the lady and we are going to go look at it Thursday. We can keep it in my moms basement until the baby comes.

Now our other great deal.. one of my good friends texted me today and told me that her mom is getting married, so they are moving into the guys house. Her uncle is going to move into her old house, and he is going to have a place open. It's a 3 br, 2 ba, and he would only charge us $325 a month for it (because he wouldn't have to pay anything in Ashley's old house)!! We haven't seen it yet, but Ashley says it's pretty nice. I am kind of apprehensive though. Her mom isn't getting married until March, which means it won't be open until March. I know that is only a month away, but a lot can happen in a month. We haven't seen the place yet either. I don't think Ashley would talk it up if it wasn't that nice, so I'm guessing it's as nice asshe says it is. She gave me his number and we are calling him tomorrow. Another thing I am worried about is that since he still lives there he may not want us to come look, and I don't want to make any commitments without seeing it, but then again I don't want to miss out on a great opportunity. If this works out for us it would be great!!!
Both of our babies would have a room, and we won't have to pay any more a month.

  2. Sounds like an awesome deal on the furniture! I wouldn't pass it up.

  3. Sounds awesome. That is a lot for a very good price. I'm a craigslist shopper myself. Haha. The house sounds awesome too. Wow only 325 for rent. I need to live up there. We pay 800.

  4. Well I think he is probably giving us a deal because Ashley is a really good friend of mine. Most of the ones I looked at were around $650. But I think he is getting Ashley's old house for free and Ashley's parents built that house, so it doesn't have any payments. So he wouldn't be paying for both..

    But I am still trying to work out the whole furniture thing. The lady wanted us to come at 6 on Thursday, but that is my birthday and we are going to eat with my parents.. I don't want her to sale it to someone else.. I really hope we can get this!
