We're negotiating to buy an apartment that doesn't have a dining room. Or any real space for a dining table. So I have been trolling the web looking for some kind of slim drop leaf table.

Thanks to my daily OCD habit of checking the Company Store's sale of the day and then sometimes browsing the rest of the offerings, I found the perfect solution.

It's this three-in-one table that can be a console table, a small dining table, or a large dining table. If I hadn't promised up and down to myself that I wouldn't buy furniture until the contract is signed, this puppy would already be sitting in our apartment in a box.

Where will I put last year's tax forms???

We are negotiating to buy a condo in Williamsburg. The contract is out but nothing has been signed. Seems like a good time to . . .

(a) take care of chores that have been piling up on my "to do" list
(b) use this downtime before I have to pack to buy Hannukah and Christmas presents
(c) choose paint and furniture for an apartment we don't yet own

If you chose (c) you're right!

I want this coffee table/trunk. And it's on sale! It could be gone by the time we're ready for it. So it makes perfect sense for me to spend $450 (yes, almost 1/2 of $1000) for a piece of furniture that you put your feet on.

Yes, I have a problem!

Wow - It's almost December.

I have been super busy and time has gotten away from me. My one reader can now expect more regular posting.

Purse, Pocketbook, Handbag . . .

. . . whatever you call it, I have too many. I would love to have one of those huge dressing rooms with perfectly sized cubbies for each one of my bags. Unfortunately, unless we convert our bedroom to a dressing room, that's not happening.

In the meantime, I bought this and attached it to the inside of our front door. It is amazing. Now I can see my bags, take them down, and put them back--all without a the help of stepstool and without giving up our bedroom.

Good stuff.
