The other day, while explaining my year of nothing new to Mother May, she declared I simply can not buy a used couch. Like any good child I asked why. Her reply: It's simply gross. Does she really think I'd buy a gross couch?? While the giant pile of laundry in my room would prove I'm not neat freak, I'm no slob. Sheesh.
While I agree a good couch is a good investment you'll keep around a while, There are plenty off good couches for great prices out there on that list of Craig's. We debated and yes it would terribly easy to go to ikea and buy the couch I saw and loved down there. But with there being 3 major colleges in my neck of the woods, Kids are selling their stuff on craig's list after only owning it for a short amount of time. I've already found that exact couch 4 different times on craig's list. I'll have to do is simply go to ikea and get a new slip cover and wa-la! good as new. I'll have to buy a couch one day soon so check back in. Any one out there buy a used couch?? thoughts? Tips??
