An unbelievable sale or you just need it?

I only buy furniture when I need it. I am in serious need of a new couch, but I am going to wait until my new carpet comes in.

It has to be pretty cheap. There are times when we JUST NEED something, but not often.

We have only purchased (or dragged home) furniture that we really needed. The last piece of furniture we brought home was a really cool old desk for Alyssa. It is from the '40s, and perfect for her room. Of course, it is currently the flat closet, piled three feet with laundry to put away.

At this point I'd only buy furniture if I needed it. Our home is full and unless a recliner broke or something like that, I wouldn't buy anything.

 I usually really really need it and then I make myself wait for an amazing sale.  I don't think I've ever bought furniture unless it was on sale and I had a serious need for it.

Right now I'm living with a 12 year old couch that has holes in it and is falling apart.  Nothing like covering couch cushions with beach towels.
