Man, your idea of awesome purchases really changes when you buy a house. You get excited about all sorts of nonsense.
This year when we got our tax return back Matt & I each got something for the house that we really wanted, then together picked out something we really needed. Then we also had to pay for cat dental surgery, :le sigh:
As you can probably tell from my Pinterest Food Challenge I love to cook and bake. I’m slowly building up my inventory in that area, and so my choice was to replace our warped, chipped, awful frying pans with balls to the walls awesome skillets. I got a 12 inch skillet and also a set of 6″, 8″ and 10″ skillets. If you follow me on instagram you’ve already seen the excitement. Try and contain yourself.
Matt decided he wanted a big roll-y tool storage thing (that’s the technical name for it, if you didn’t know). He picked out this Task Force 5-Drawer Steel Tool Cabinet and plans to put it together this weekend, hang up some shelving we have lying around, and basically reorganize the whole unfinished side of the basement. We party hard on the weekends.
Together we decided we also desperately need a leaf blower. And we need one that can handle wet leaves because frankly we’re lazy and generally don’t get rid of all the leaves until spring, when 800 feet of snow has melted on top of them. At first we wanted a battery powered one because Matt thought a plug-in one might be a hassle, but the more he read the more it seems like batteries are a real hassle (for this particular type of equipment) as well. So we decided to go with this gas powered Hitachi leaf blower and maybe one day it’ll actually warm up outside so we can give it a go.
There you go, our crazy house stuff spending spree. I thought I’d share on here in case you’re in the market for similar things, we did lots of research to see what would work best for us. How are you spending your tax return?
