ok, so i'm one of those 20 somethings...not to experienced on ALL aspects of life, unknowingly went furniture shopping with my mom and my sis today (to furnish our new house).
who knew that furniture cost so damn much. we went to like a dozen stores from 11 to about 6, looking, sitting, laying...at all the furniture. that stuff isn't cheap. we were at thomasville, who were asking upwards of 300 dollars on just a lamp that at ikea would be like 20. i know there's an obvious difference but still. so what do we need, if i'm correct, we need two mattress sets (both queen i believe) to sofa sets, and a dining room set. i don't even want to ponder at the cost of all of that.
and after all that, all we bought today was a stand/cabinet thingy to go in our foyer, and a sofa table sit (i.e. lamp stands, coffee table, sofa table)...and that was like a grand.....anybody wanna donate some money??
