our first big "purchase" was getting our bathroom cabinets refaced and adding a custom cabinet in our living room "cubbie"…we also got a (on the cheap side) computer this week, bc his from about 2002 is dying, and I have to write my masters report this year…ugh

We’re not married yet, but a few months after getting engaged, my Fiance & I bought a house here in the bay area & we’re so glad we did!  We pushed our wedding out to a 1.5 year engagement to get used to the payment shock and combining our finances to save for the wedding, but it was so worth it cause we love our new home!  At the time, I couldn’t imagine spending all this $$ on a wedding w/out a home, so I’m glad we did it!

Our new bed!  We both knew we wanted to spend money get a nice, king size bed so we held off on getting nicer furniture for the rest of the house, so we could have that!

Technically our first big purchase was a house and now it’s been everything to put in it, new kitchen appliances, new living/dining/bedroom furniture!

We haven’t made any big purchases since the wedding.  We did most of our big purchases beforehand- house, new tractor, new dishwasher, couches, etc.  I’d say our next thing is a new fridge.  Oh and I badly want a new washer/dryer.  Ours is so old, but it hasn’t broken YET so there’s no need to waste money right now…ugh.

We first bought a car, followed closely by a home.

We bought a house!  And then we bought new paint and kitchen appliances for it.  And then bedroom furniture.

We’ve been very busy stimuating the economy.

Not married yet but a year ago we  bought a house together. I think that is the biggest so far and then a few months ago a new truck! So I am sure the next thing that we actually might buy together will be bedroom furniture  not as big but it counts!

Before we moved in together 2 yrs ago we bought a bed together.  We werent’ even engaged yet – how scandalous!

Since then we’ve bought other stuff together (computer, tv…) but are not yet married.  We are buying a condo and closing on it next week!   We just joined finances so I guess technically now everything we buy is "together"….
