Shovels, hoses, and mowers

Things I have realized we will need that we don't have:
Towels for 3 bathrooms
Toilet scrubber for 3 bathrooms
Bath mat for 2 bathrooms
2 outside hoses
Lawn mower
Gas for the mower
Rake
Shovel
Snow shovel
Ice melt
Edger
Shower curtains for 2 bathrooms
Soap for 3 bathrooms
...
I wonder what I've forgotten.
Close tomorrow.
Move in Friday.
Somebody pinch me:-)

Don't worry, you'll start hyperventilating when you sign the closing documents. I about died when I realized how much money we were spending!!

And you don't need all that stuff right now...except maybe the snow shovel. It is Utah, you know.

oh there will be more, trust me. the joys of homeownership. I still need to buy an hedge trimmer because after 3 years of doing it by hand boy golly it would have been worth the 30 bucks for an electric trimmer. I say hold off on some of it because things will inevitably come up. You don't need 3 bathrooms for now or just go with white towels for all the bathrooms so you can interchange them. They also hold up easier because they don't get bleach spots and can be bleached if needed (just a tip I've picked up on tons of decorating blogs I've read and from experience). I have some with a cute pattern to them from Target. I mean maybe you have a money tree growing in your new yard, but we tried to withstand buying everything we realized we would need at first and reserved our spending for the essentials, but then you are the BUDGET QUEEN and I AM NOT! I probably did good at because who wants to spend money on those things? Not me! We also opted for a weed eater instead of an edger because it can do that job as well but maybe you don't need a weed eater. Do you guys have Homegoods there or just TJ Maxx? I saw some adorable shower curtains there a few weeks ago, they probably have some of the selection at TJ Maxx too and great prices! So excited for you guys!

oh there will be more... just get the necessities at first- it adds up so fast!

I am so excited for you!

It is crazy how quickly the list builds up when you move into a house. And it doesn't end soon! It is fun though.

Sue said...

It really adds up, doesn't it? But oh...you are in for such a good time.

Nesting is way more fun in your own home!

=)

There will always be more stuff that you realize you need. I'm so excited for you guys, there is nothing like owning your own home! So fun!!
