Planning and Shopping Before a Move

After a long hiatus, I’m back at it again!

After apartment hunting and finally signing a lease, it was time to start planning and shopping. I had about two months before my move in date, but wanted to get a start on furniture browsing and making lists of what I would need for the new apartment. This also gave me time to hunt down online sales!

Here’s a list of the main pieces I already had before moving:
Bed, Ikea
Purple Desk and Desk Chair, Ikea
TV stand, Ikea
Converted Bar Cart, CB2 (unfortunately no longer sold)
Bookshelf, Target

What I bought for the new apartment:
Rugs: One for the couch area and one for the bed area from Target
Two accent chairs from Target
Dining table and chairs set from Ikea
Coffee table from Overstock
Tufted Sleeper Couch (my big splurge) from Club Furniture
Dresser from Ikea (matches purple desk)
Two Rolling Carts from Ikea (for bathroom storage and night stand)

And of course, plenty of accessories, but far too many to post!
