So I've wanted this furniture set for a long time. Unfortunately, we could not get the entire set to fit in our basement without looking like clown furniture, so I settled for the sofa, otterman and a chair and 1/2 that has yet to arrive. I was toying with getting the loveseat for upstairs but there really isn't any reason to spend the cash right now.
When I first discovered this furniture set at Ashley's it was pretty expensive. Now that it has gone through their stock and rotated into their outlet stores, the price has dropped. There are several sites I could order the complete set for half of what it would have cost me in the store 5 years ago. I didn't get the best deal but I did good.
It's very hard to be on your A-game all the time. That is especially true when it comes to buying anything. We strive to find the balance between getting the best deal possible and getting something we desire, such a new sofa. At the same time, I begrudgingly acknowledge that isn't always going to happen. You buy something and a month later its a 10% cheaper.
Our agent found us a renter for my condo but it will be another month before I start seeing revenue because the first month is finders fee. Even then I'm still paying a small money out-of-pocket to cover the cost of the condo but at least it's significantly less then if I let the unit remain unrented.
