Little girls and free couches

We just made a huge move to Washington from California and we only took with us what we could fit in a mini van. After three years of difficult finincial times and finally having furniture it was a little difficult to say goodbye to it all. Only a week after getting here and one day of garage sales we are now the proud owners of a dining table, 4 chairs, a rocking chair, 4 dressers, 2 side tables/ottomans and a leather couch. All of this for under 80 bucks. The couch was an especially awesome nab because it was free and a group of girls all under 10 helped me load it by themselves into the mini van. It had some broken beams but nothing Jones couldn't fix. I found out it was an Ikea couch and so I went online to see what it would have cost us brand new. The answer was $679!

Overall I feel we have been looked out for and incredibly blessed.
