Economic Stimulus Plan
Well, I have to say that I really don't buy into the whole Economic Stimulus Plan thing. We had planned on putting the money towards debt or savings because Hey, we don't mind a little extra. SIGH, I guess we're using it for the planned use. We'll be stimulating the economy through RC Willeys. We had decided before we did taxes that we needed a new mattress and were going to splurge a little and get a new one from the local scratch and dent clearance outlet. We also mentioned that we would really like to get a loveseat for downstairs since if we have even our family downstairs we don't have enough seats for everyone. (we only have the one loveseat and it seats two) When we have guest over guess who ends up sitting on the floor. That's right, me. Sushi mentioned that he really would like leather and I have to admit that I have grown accustomed to leather. It's great, if, I mean when my kids spill I just wipe it off and the couch isn't ruined. Best upholstry ever when you have kids. I looked in the local classifieds and people want an arm and a leg for their crappy used leather couches so we decided to look in the clearance outlet while we were there. We found a great one that will be delivered tomorrow. The mattress was delived today and I think we're going to need a step stool to get into our bed now! I am excited that I won't be sitting on the floor anymore when we have guests over too. We got some great deals so I really don't feel too bad about it at all. We got a $900 mattress for $400 and we found the leather love seat with the two reclining seats and the table between them for $600. It always feels a little crazy to walk out of the furniture store with nothing after we just spent $1000.00 but I am so excited to sleep in a nice mattress tonight and have great seating tomorrow! I'll post pictures of both tomorrow. How will you spend your economic stimulus check?
