large home, clean slate, no money - where to begin
In less than two weeks, DH and I will close on our first home. Iâ€™m very excited, but I have no clue where to even begin. Right now, we live in a 1000sq/f apartment. We have one couch, a camping chair, two book cases, a small kitchen table, a broken dresser, and two beds. Besides pots and pans, thatâ€™s all that we have.
The house weâ€™re buying is a beautiful 3bd, 2.5bath, 1800sq/f home, with a gorgeous sun room. The house is begging to be decorated but we donâ€™t have anything, or any extra money, to decorate with.
Luckily, with spring here we can start hitting up garage sales.
Iâ€™m just curious - if you had a large house, very few 'essentials', and a very small budget what would you focus on first?
Would you rather put the money into decorating the living room, kitchen, sun room, guest bathroom, master bedroom/bathroom, guest bedroom, etc.?
