Furniture is too damn high

May 18th, 2015 at 03:37 am

If I ever end up in hell, my eternal punishment will be moving house from one side of hell to the other. Through congested traffic so every drive takes 3 times longer. And then I get a flat tire when I have moved all my tools to the other house.

To furnish the house with everything we were missing, moving back and forth the 1 hr drive each way and takeout food for the week because no way I was cooking, came to *shudder* $6412.13.
I never knew beds could be so expensive. Then you have to mattresses on them? I wasn't born yesterday snake oil salesmen.

To say I feel dirty is an understatement. I knew this was coming for months but I still wasn't prepared for it deep down inside.
I adjusted my side bar, a bit depressing. The only consolation I can draw from is we are having some phenomenal business across the ledger and we could possibly be looking at a new greatest monthly income in July or very close to it. So that money will offset anything we have had to spend. But still Ouch.
I blush just reading the number.

The only ray of light in my darkest week was my wife got me a new GoPro camera for making videos.
Fun fact, when you have food in the house you crave take out, when you only have take out you crave anything homemade.
It will take months of retraining to stop my flinching reflex every time I open my wallet. One day at a time.

    Hoping now that you're in the new place you'll only have minimal spending!

    Moving IS expensive. Although we don't generally buy new beds when we move. Smile

    Buy used and save the difference.

    Secretary - We tried to buy some used bedroom sets off craigslist but you have to be a ninja to get there first.
    The ad an hour old? forget it. 20 minute drive away? someone will beat you to it.
    The biggest expense was beds all round with decent mattresses and linen sets.

    VS - I have resigned myself from minimal spending. like Moby dicks white whale, the harder I try to achieve it the more likely it is to kill me.

    CC - Unfortunately then last place had beds with crappy foam mattresses that I was more then glad to leave behind. 3 days in and my back already thanks me.

    What we do?
    We own and operate a company. We operate entirely in the entertainment industry.
    We finance and develop products that we then partner with companies at retail level for a profit split. We currently have 8 major products but we expect this to triple over the next 2 -3 years and our income along with it.
    Along with this we are currently working through the due diligence legal processes to set up a sister company. Industry partners will be responsible for the product development, we will finance initial concepts and take the products to the market place. This side of the business is however 6 months away from generating revenue.
    We have been in business for 14 months.
    My wife is the income generator and I'm the backroom staff. It's her unique experience and connections that gives us such an advantageous market position.
    You can google us ( but we like our privacy on this blog)
    The success rate of the industry is extremely low due to the enormous risk and many times more people go broke than those who actually make it.
    We are extremely cautious where we invest both our time and money and we expect a return for every cent and minute we spend.
    We have had shaky starts and scary moments and we defiantly aren't feeling secure enough to sit back on our bums. the industry is cut throat and competitive and you have to be constantly innovating to stay relevant and solvent.

    Ah, replacing a crappy mattress makes sense and I can see where moving was a helpful motivator. I'm getting rid of stuff I don't like before we move too.
