We're helping our son to get things he will need.

Thursday, October 16, 2014

I didn't feel well yesterday evening, I had gut problems. I didn't go to church because there aren't that many bathrooms between here and there. I went to sleep in the bed, but was up by 1:30 AM and finished the night in the recliner. Today I took it easy too and will work tomorrow be the Lord Willing.

My son went out tonight and bought some things for his new townhouse, pans, a broom and dust pan, a plastic spoon, a pizza cutter,vegetable peeler, spatula, some baking dishes and cookie sheets, two laundry baskets. He bought a bunch of knives with the wooden block holder with his girlfriend the other night. I gave him a new casserole pan with a lid from a Corning outlet in West Virginia. He got a metal mixing bowl with a ladle. I know I am missing some things, but I don't want to go through his stuff to look.

I told him to go to the Dollar Tree and look and make a list on his smart phone and delete what he buys or check it off. I don't have a smart phone and can't tell you what its capabilities are. I told him to get a container of laundry detergent to take with him. He doesn't want to take from us because of hubby being off work for two months. It will be okay. I told him if he e-mailed me his lists, I could be on the lookout in the newspaper for him and e-mail him where to get stuff on sale.

    I miss my three kids too but everyone has to leave the nest sooner or later and make their own. Then we get to spoil the grand kids. Enjoying that now. Keep on keeping on! emoticon

    I left home at age 20 and lived in a furnished apartment. I had nothing. The first thing I did was buy bed linen, pots and pans, a few utensils. I had some daily dishes given to me. I did remember toilet paper, vitamins, and an alarm clock. I bet he is excited. Having your own place for the first time whether renting or owning is an exciting experience. Remind him of the Good Will Store as well. I still roam there now and then.

    I agree with Frosty - thrift stores are great.
    It's hard to set up housekeeping for the first time...and then hard to move after decades of accumulation! That's why I'm staying put as long as possible! emoticon

    I don't know about your area, but when we moved in and needed nearly everything, I checked thrift stores and yard sales and got new and nearly new items for pennies on the dollar. I still do the bulk of my buying at these places and save mega money on what we need. To us, it is the thrill of the hunt! Going to two big community sales tomorrow!!!
