It’s official: my boyfriend has moved in with me!
And my challenge for August was to see how much everything would cost. In July, here was my breakdown of what I estimated we would spend.
Cooking Utensils (Knives, etc.)
Pots + Pans
Plates + Bowls
Right off the bat, we saved around $900 just from my previous roommate letting us keep the microwave, his mom buying us pots and pans (bless her soul), and me finding some old plates and bowls I bought in first year of college. SCORE.
And here is what we actually spent:
$450 for a leather loveseat.
$80 for a gorgeous wooden dresser.
$379 at Wal-Mart for mostly kitchen and cleaning supplies.
$60 at Dollarama buying kitchen utensils, mats, a mop, and other odds and ends.
Altogether, that comes to $969.00, which means we only spent 484.50 each! So incredible. I did not expect to spend that little but I’m happy my estimate was way off.
One thing I did take away from this experience is that Dollarama is literally a haven for all things home. We found so much stuff in there that was double the price anywhere else. I would definitely recommend going there before you hit up a bigger store like Wal-Mart.
For my September challenge, I plan on making mo’ progress and challenging myself to wake up without hitting the snooze button on my alarm (something I’m notorious for). I can’t wait to see if I’m going to make a new habit out of this 🙂
Keep you posted!
