Our August wedding was held at home, the very place we filled with the incoming spouse’s stuff. Who was there for the wedding itself? First, let’s review who was there BEFORE the wedding party took place:
- pressure washer
- window installer
- hot tub maintenance guy
- window cleaner
- flooring company
- shelving installer
After the party:
- new toilet seat cover
We’ll add more to this post as we remember who else helped to beautify the house for the event. (We’re still on our honeymoon!)
When two adults with fully furnished households decide to merge, what will happen to all their stuff? Get extra storage space or relegate one spouse’s boxed stuff to an unused bedroom?
Sell the excess stuff, place grandma’s vintage furniture throughout the “new” house, fight about what stays and what goes, negotiate, toss ugly shoes, stack mattresses, inundate the beds with all the extra pillows, fight some more…
We’ll probably open a business so we’ll have somewhere to put all the extra furniture and accoutrements!
(Oh, I should also mention that now we have a lifetime supply of various sunscreens and soap.)
