I put together a wish list for the house in hopes of getting closer to some of these larger items and to also make it easier to know what it is we are needing. As things are purchased, I will edit the list and remove what is no longer needed. Like today, we picked up a weed whacker and a solar attic fan, so I took both of those items off the list. Of course, I had to put a couple items on the list that we really don't need, but it sure would be nice to have.
All of us really appreciate all of the help we receive with the house and reach the goals of purchasing some of those larger ticket items. With this being our first house, we had no idea how much it would really cost just to move in and to get all of the little stuff.
