We aren’t newlyweds yet but a few months ago we bought a couch together! When I moved in with my fiance he had this super uncomfortable, ugly couch and a futon. So we got rid of the nasty couch and we were using the futon until a couple of months ago when we finally got a new couch. Our next big purchase will probably be a new stove.

We also aren’t married yet, but this year, in addition to saving up for the wedding itself, we’ll be saving up for our first HUGE purchase, a house! ***gasp*** getting an ulcer about it already! We are moving to Virginia in August so I can work on my Ph.D., and we’ll be living in an apartment for a year so that we can shop around…my degree will take 5 years, so we figure it is better than paying up to $50,000 in rent for that time…

Hmmm….as a couple after fully integrating finances I think our first BIG purchase was either the couch (microfiber dual recliner three seat couch & love seat) or our car. Then came a new mattress/box set, then the house, then the entertainment system (TV, surround sound, PS3, etc).

And then of course all the wonderful home projects that come along with the house that Lowes so graciously takes ALL of our money!! 🙂 But I am happy to announce in a months time we will have replaced all 12 windows in our home (it’s been a 2 year process)!! yay!

But to answer your question, honestly, I don’t foresee any big purchases after marriage. We have a lot of the big items already. I really really want one of those super cool stainless steel fridges where the freezer pulls out at the bottom and two doors on top that opens to one big fridge. But that won’t open for a WHILE. Or a Viking Stove; but I’m pretty sure that will never ever happen unless we find one on super clearance or one of us wins the lottery. haha.

OMG! So jealous! At least you get to cook on it every now and then!My dream kitchen would the that fridge, Viking Stove with oven. Then another recessed oven on the wall for baking. Sigh.

Sorry, to get off topic. hehe.

Well, I guess our first big purchase was my ring. 🙂 I didn’t pay for it, but I picked it out!

We’ve bought cars together, 3 in 6 years in fact. We have bad car luck! We’ve bought lots of furniture. I don’t really consider that a big purchase though. My husband already owned the house we live in, so if and when we buy a new one, I’ll consider that a big purchase.

A new car was our first purchase! Mine was seriously dying right before the wedding, and we just needed it to last a few more months! She made it…not without LOTS of trouble though. It was parked out front of my brother’s house about a month before the wedding when some kid ran a stopsign, was hit and pushed into my cute car  She survived though and now I have my cute new car

Not married yet, but our first big purchase was a pickup! I was NOT excited about it, but FI’s old pickup was on its last leg, and the new one was a steal, and his dream manly-man pickup.

I figured we better get this out of the way before we have a house & kids lol.

We’re not married yet, but we’re looking to purchase our first home!  Exciting, yet scary at the same time!  🙂

We are not married yet, but we live together; we recently bought a replacement cd-player system for our car to replace the ghetto 10 year old original one that was in there. It was definitely worth the money!

Our house will be our biggest purchase together. And I’m sure there will be lots of big furniture, electronic, and home improvement purchases right after that.

Oh, that’s going to be so fun when we get to that stage.  The mister can’t start his *real* job until after the wedding, but I’m HOPING it’ll be a house when our apartment lease ends in early 2010!
