I live on a military base where everyone has the same floor plan. I am amazed at how the majority of people complain about not fitting a dining table in their apartment when I have a 6 person table sitting easily in mine, along with a sofa and a chaise lounge.

I have learned that the new and higher end things are not always the best. For instance, I have inherited a pan that is 30 years old, but it has outlived pans that I have had only for 3 years.

On another note, my Blendtec blender is amazing! Definitely worth the price, especially because cheap blenders are such a pain to use.

My biggest oops was buying a 10 person table off CL but not bringing any tools. It took some creativity, but I managed to disassemble it.

Instead of buying a window film, you can use a mixture of water and corn starch to put up fabric. I've done it in my living room and it has stayed well for the past 3 years. It is much cheaper!

I've had the ikea curtain panels before and let me tell you, they are horrible. They catch on each other, are really hard to get even on the bottom, and still leave crack between them. If she never plans to move or adjust them again, they are fine. But, I warn people, don't buy them!
