To the Darkside

May 13, 2009 § Leave a comment

We’re closing on our very first house on Friday. It’s smallish, just because the rooms aren’t organized well, but I’m hopeful we can make it feel Not-So-Big rather than cramped, as the current owners have it.

I’m trying to learn how to haggle with vendors over the many, many things we’re purchasing. I’ve finally worked myself up to say “We’ve been loyal customers for ___ years now/I’m buying a lot; I’m hoping you can give me a discount.” Still produces the fight-or-flight response, I’m embarrassed to say.
