$1,000 bonus - spent!

My wife and I already spent her unexpected $1,000 bonus she learned about on Thursday. Yeah, it didn't take us long.

We purchased a new bedroom set yesterday for $920 including tax, delivery and set-up. The photo below is of the complete set, but we only purchased the bed, nightstand, and the dresser (without the mirror).

We had planned to pull money out of savings to get a bedroom set, so word of her extra bonus came at a perfect time.

Nice bedroom set. We all need to splurge once in a while. :)

I love the set and I'm not opposed to using the bonus money on it; however, had you waiting until this upcoming weekend, you might have saved some money due to the Memorial Day sales. Oh well...that's still not a bad price for all that you got! Hope you guys enjoy it!

Money Funk-
I agree. This month we did quite a bit of splurging. June will be the month for us to get back on track.

Thankfully, the store we bought the furniture from does not do sales, so we don't have to worry about the price dropping for Memorial Day.
