Back from Arizona but headed straight to work!

All I can say, I LOVE IT!!! I love AZ, hubby now lives in Chandler.  I was able to help him furnish the apartment with less than $1,000.  I guess if given more time there, I'd say I would be able to do it in less than $600 but since I am just there for less than a week, I couldn't really get much stuff from craigs and moreover, we do not have a truck or SUV to haul the stuff back and coordinating with different sellers and not sure if they sold it or not was not really a good option.

So, what did I get?  I managed to get floor model sectional set, a floor model memory foam bed + box spring.  That was the biggest item.  Best of all, we bought them on Memorial Day and there was no tax!  Talking about tax, the taxes here in TX is just 8.25% but in AZ, it was 8.8% and I was told that some places goes up to 9.9%?  Wow....

I am sure somebody else will be able to do better but I think I've did pretty well.  Some pictures to share below :)

Anyway, managed to get the following all under $1,000:

Grand Total  $961.25
Sectional  $399.00
Bed  $199.00
Side Table  $    9.99
Table Lamp  $   15.98
4 Pillows  $   39.46
7 set Comforter  $   39.99
7 Picture Frames  $   20.93
Dining Table Set  $   79.99
TV Cabinet  $   69.99
2 Decorative boxes  $   12.99
2 sets of window curtains  $   38.96
Curtain Rods  $   26.98
Floor Lamp  $     7.99


  1. I just figured out your blog!
    You did an awesome job in the apartment! How did you get all that awesome stuff for under a grand?! Where is my luck?!

  2. You are amazing Laura...Superwoman...i salute to you...

  3. all i can say is...WOW!! you GO mama! very impressive how you got all that for less than $1000!! You are my new inspiration! I lovee the sofa and the dining table!! the room looks nice too. The cutest of all is your son! :) How did you get all those things??

    And in California where I just relocated from Florida, taxes are 9.25%! It's practically worth it though honestly...the water tastes better, it's prettier everywhere I go (at least around where I live), the food is amazing. It's like you're paying more for a better quality of life
