My sofa is arriving today. Yes, I’ve spent a large portion of my “large purchase” fund money on a beautiful Sante Fe-hued Jive couch. It’s large, it’s comfy, it’s beautiful. My living room will actually have a piece of furniture in it now; maybe it won’t echo as much once the sofa is in place. Thankfully, I’ve been saving up for these large home purchases which I was anticipating, but now my savings bar will be a bit decreased. I suppose that was the purpose of this fund: to spend it on home purchases.
