I am so tired. I’ve been up since 5:30. This is a normal Saturday for me, but I’ve also spent some 12 hours in the car, so I’m tired.
Casye & I checked out three places today. The first one we didn’t like at all, the second one we liked a lot, the third place we liked okay. In the end, we ended up back-tracking to the second place and talked them into giving us a chance. They want to make sure we make enough so rent won’t be a problem, so we need to get our bosses to say we each make 1800/month. If we can swing that (I think we can), we’re golden.
2 bedroom - 1 bed, 1 loft.
We originally hadn’t considered this specific unit because it was out of our price range, but they were running a special so it was only $25 above where I was looking, and we could totally do that. For what we were getting, it made sense to go a little higher.
I’ll put up pictures tomorrow probably. They’re on my camera upstairs and I think once SNL is over, I’ll go to bed.
The shelving unit is what I will very likely return to buy to use as my bedside table because 1) It is the baby version of my massive bookcase & therefore matches perfectly, 2) it is cheaper than all the real bedside tables, and 3) it also has way more storage than those other tables.
Going down this weekend to check out our Top 3 with my dad, Casye, & her mom.
I’ve just been given a free couch & swivel chairs (brand new!) from a realtor who staged a house where the client didn’t want to keep them! Exciting! (I can’t have them til Feb though, which is fine)
I’ve also been offered a free bedroom set, but will likely only take the full size mattress, because it means I can get that gorgeous bed frame I’ve been drooling over for the past two years.
I talked to one of the nice ladies in the office of the apartment I like best this morning and she gave me a plethora of information. There are two units available in our price range. And they include water, sewer, & gas!
Our third choice emailed me and gave me pretty much no info at all, but let me know it was cool to drop by this weekend.
