What to do

Ok my DH & I are tryin to figure out what to do with some of the taxes we received, and unfortunately can only do one now, then save and do the other later. Heres options
Heres the bed we are wanting to get for the kids, but our daughters is white instead of the natural color our son is getting.

Total for both its up near $1000

Then there is a list of small things (dressers, toybox, ottomans, organizers, bean bags, tables & chairs, lamps) & adds up to about $636
Now the beds, is only for two, and we are having #3 in July, but going to use the baby bed our daughter is about to get out of. Our son has a car bed, and our daughter is going to have his hand me down toddler bed till we get something else. The misc. stuff is all 3 of the kids.
So should we get the bed for 2 and save for misc. for 3
OR
get misc for 3 and save for beds for 2.

  • Yea we think it will work great for our girls..kinda give them their own space even though eventually they are going to share a room, and it can last them forever

  • go for the beds that you need and pic up the smaller stuff one at a time when you have the money.

  • Go for the beds. #3 won't even notice and by the time s/he does, you'll have picked up the miscellaneous pieces here and there.
