How many people call it quits after day 1???
« on: August 06, 2004, 06:26:11 PM »
as I waste my final days away pondering where i can get some badly needed furniture cheap, the thought came into my mind...how many people call it quits after day 1? I thought back to college and remember people who'd move all their crap into a dorm, and then you'd see them moving it all out a week later because they withdrew from school...and they'd always be willing to sell their stuff cheap instead of packing it up again. but i thought it would be interesting to hear others' opionions.

I think it's so rare it's almost unheard of.  At my school, our section of 92 only lost 2 people the first semester, and I think about 3-4 at the end of the year, but I think most of those people transferred.

I have a sofa I don't want.  Where in the country are you?

I think losing about 10% is norm, but unlike college most don't leave until the end of first semester, there might be a couple that leave during first semester.

I moved to a new state, and I went to two garage sales in nice communities and got a house FULL of stuff for less than $350. I didn't buy a used couch or bed, though. I paid big bucks for those at major stores. Couch/Chair: $700, Bed $650

Good luck with furniture! I'm afraid of old couches, but then again, I moved to the South, with bugs.
