My wife and I moved into our house at the beginning of September. Finally, nearly three months later, we were able to solve the most controversial purchase and topic of discussion….our new couch. I cannot explain why, but we visited an insane number of furniture stores, sat on hundreds of couches, and could never find one that we both loved. Finally, though, after these three very long months, we found “the one.” I wanted to share the story about how a few simple tricks saved me almost $375 on our new could. The best part, it took less than a half hour to save some serious cash.
