We went shopping

This weekend Jacky and I went shopping and bought...
And because we did such a good job at haggling Jacky (after MUCH debate) won, and got his 106 cm High Definition Plasma TV (with built in HD tuner). The RRP was $3845.00, for 5 stores we could only talk them down to $3190 or $3250, finally talked a place down to $3000.

Moral of the story? make sure you shop around, do your research, have a game plan and don't be afraid to ask for a better price. In total we saved $2230 off the RRP.

We are officially broke.

Tash: See we would have been under budget if Jacky didn't get his TV.. we're a bit over now and we still haven't bought furniture yet.

Tim: Yup at this rate we're going to have a nice TV and be eating off plastic plates.

homegirl: happy till i check my bank account =P

aiYAH emily! that's why you should have gotten MARRIED before you moved into a new house together, so you could have gotten all of them for free as wedding gifts!!!

=P

your asset rich but cash flow poor. You gotta have an awesome TV for your own house.....you can't have it any other way!

Di: the cost of a wedding couldn't possibly cover the cost of house hold appliances and you wouldnt expect people to buy such expensive gifts! hehehe Plus if we got married then we couldn't afford a house.

Matthew: I don't know about this asset rich business...i just feel really really broke...pay day tomorrow woo!
