So many deals. So little room.

As a home stager, I am always meeting folks in transition. I also have to shop alot. And I am the queen of bargain finders. All this brings alot of "deals" into my path. Especially deals on furniture. All these deals allow me to get good buys on my staging items, however, it also creates drama in my life...and my family's lives.

For example, I don't own a truck. My daughter does however. It's amazing what I have had to barter for to get my daughter out to pick up the latest bargain that I have purchased. Sometimes it cost me the item I just purchased. After traveling to the next town to get a fabulous dining set, she eyed the china cab and graciously offered to "keep it for me" until I needed it. I got to keep  the table. The cab is filled with dishes and crystal. I hope I don't need it anytime soon.

This week, I actually passed up a fabulous bargain on a dining set. It took me a while to do so. I made the movers start in the next room while I stressed about the table. I had to remind myself how far from home I was, how I didn't have a truck, how the table had some scratches, how I didn't actually have a place to put it right now. Depsite all these negatives, it was still quite painful to tell the movers to put the table on their truck.  I knew I could have at least made money reselling it. The movers laughed at my obvious angst.  Perhaps this is the bargain slave's equivalent of a dieter sending back dessert.

Mona Lisa, that's one of the delimas we face as Stagers. We want to buy everything, so to speak. It definitely helps to have a truck or a small van in this line of work. So that you don't have to pass up those great deals.
