My kids and (I think sometimes) my hubby thinks that I am a weirdo when it comes to changing the house around. I swear I am always switching something around and changing out stuff. I am trying to become less impulsive with my furniture shopping habits though. When we first bought our home, I insisted I wanted a nice sectional (let’s just say, 2.5 years later, we no longer have a sectional). As I am writing this post I realized that my oldest piece of furniture is my dining room set (4 years) and trust me I am already itching to change it. I have gotten a stern NO already, lol.
So because I can’t move the furniture around and change it as often as I would like, I am stuck with changing the curtains very often. I started changing them around every 2 months or so and have now narrowed it down to the seasons and have also started reusing what I have instead of buying new ones. On average I spend almost $360 on curtains and that is not even for the whole house, just downstairs and also I am using coupons and these curtains are on sale. Never knew curtains were so expensive until I got such oversized windows that require more than 2 curtains to give a nice full look.
I usually shop at JC Penney for my curtains, whenever the home sale is going on; you can get 30-50% off sometimes even 70% from their select curtains. I have tried other retailers but either they don’t have the size that I need for my patio door or if they do have something for the patio door, they don’t have something to match the windows or close enough to the color.
I am becoming a homemaker, OMG! So am I alone out there with changing my curtains and furniture around often, I am blaming it on new home syndrome and trying to make the place comfy and also practical maybe…(dais my story and I am sticking to it)
