I stopped by the new house last night to pick up the mail that had been delivered there-the insurance paperwork to be exact. The current owners have completely moved out, but are doing the cleaning work.
They asked me if we wanted to keep the carpet remnants that were in each of the 2nd floor bedrooms. I was thrilled to accept! Even though they are a little not exactly what we might wish, they will keep Princess & Buddy’s feet warm (hardwood bedroom floors in NY in winter are NOT warm!) and give me time to wait for the perfect rugs to present themselves to me at a frugal cost. . . .
As usual, the most frugal thing to buy is nothing.
Oh, and we found out from the lawyers office* that the closing will be on Tuesday-at 9am. Apparently the lawyers really didn’t want to all meet that early, but the next soonest appointment they all had available at the same time was a week after that!
*In NY it is required to have a lawyer for closing-I understand that is different in some other states.
