Shop till ya drop

It seems that we MIGHT have an apartment. We found THE PERFECT place for the most amazing price. We turned in our paperwork and after talking to the landlord, things seem to be looking our way. However, we won't have a definite answer until Wed. or Thurs. Knowing that eventually I am going to need a WHOLE LOT of stuff for the apartment (because both Yomaida and I are going into this with nothing but some clothes and two couches), I decided to do some price shopping today. My current roomate, Zunny, accompanied me down town where there are thousands of little stores that sell descent stuff for reasonable prices. Here's what I got:
This little pile includes some amazing new dishes (a nice set for $20), 3 pans that were on sale, 3 tuperwear containers, and...well....there's a story with the coffee pot. Zunny and I decided to go to Carrifour which is their equivalent to Wal-Mart where we decided we needed some coffee for the house. I went to pick up my favorite brand and the lady in the aisle was showing the promotion....5 pounds of coffee got you a 6-cup coffee pot for FREE. HAH! So, for $15 I got 5 pounds of coffee and a coffee pot. I'm thinkin thats a good deal! I didn't have a coffee pot yet for the apt. so I killed two birds with one stone.
Being silly with my new pans...
Zunny and I getting back from out 6-hour shopping spree in the POURING rain!
And this HEAP is my current closet. Yes, this pile of sheer mess is how I am currently living with no space to call my own. Well, I absolutely adore Zunny and so it is worth having the mess to get to share a room with her for a week or so. No biggy!

I'll be sure to post an update as SOON as I get word on the apartment. Today's shopping was only a taste of what is to come....here are some of the things on my very long list
fridge
microwave
bed and mattress
curtains
a few rugs to help with the cold tile floors
silverware
glassware
etc...

I like the apt stuff, sounds like fun! I hope that I will get to see the apt sooner than later- I've been praying a lot that you will get it and that I will be able to come!
O and I love the quote lol!

I feel your pain. Fun yet a lot of work at the same time! People forget what it takes to "make a house your own". Can't wait to hear!
