Thank you Sara Rae! My hubby and I are relocating from the slow suburbs of Kentwood, Michigan to the busy city of Chicago. Between our relator, co-workers, and many, many blogs searching for help in deciding just what condo in what neighborhood to buy in...no one has suggested your " 'doh! -why didn't I think of that idea?"!

Go big or go home errr... Sometimes a small thing like a tiny picture in a large matted frame makes you "walk in" to take a closer look at *eye level. Small items sitting up so high will look just like the dust collecting clutter they will be.

When my husband and I first moved in together we were the first couple to have a large enough pad for the rest of our entourage to hang out. I strongly recommend that you consider using his sofa for that reason alone. My vision for our new love shack was going to be sofisticated and "grown-up". His vision, "Alllrighht! My friends can come over and play video games, drink beer! Think of the fun we'll have honey and the money we will all save by not going to the bar! Whoohoo!" Um yeah. Believe it or not he was worth it, we did have a ton of fun and in the end and I now have a "grown-up" gammer-free sofa. Cheers!
