More notes about what we were buying from IKEA. We bought almost all of our furniture at IKEA, and if we needed something and didn't like what they had there, we bought it on Craigslist. Tara and I had a very minimalist approach when we first moved (although from her side, I think it might have been to save money, I'm about reducing clutter and only having things in my life that bring me joy; yes, I know who I sound like). We didn't want to just buy something because everyone else told us we needed it, or because we assumed we needed it. We would wait until we felt the pain before we bought something. A good example was a printer. We didn't buy a printer for like the first year, but we needed to print so much stuff (for returns, for taxes, etc.) and printing by going to FedEx was such a huge pain in the ass that it was just worth it to buy a printer.
