Having a reality check while you buy furniture for your new home

As we will be moving soon to our new place, we’ve been going around with Pat looking for new furniture we will need: sofa, dining table, new beds and bedroom stuff for the kids and so on.

As it happens most of the times, this is something new for us. We never had this need before, so it’s our first time in Canada looking for this kind of things. So, we decided to check a few places to see what they have, and for how much. The places we’ve been at were Ikea (how not!), Leon’s, The Brick, Structubes, The Upper Room, My House and De Boers.

I'm sorry? How much?

I'm sorry? How much for a sofa?

It’s nice to see how people with a 1 million dollar place decorate their homes… I guess that’s the people that buys a 5k+ sofa, for instance. And it was good to do a reality check and see where I stand in the social piramid.

If you drive a Kia van, you cannot pretend to by not even a bedside table at some places like De Boers!
