But I digress.
Suffice it to say, that's not the situation here.
I'm looking at an empty space that I wanna turn into a place to play/use/store my junk, but I don't have any money to do it with. I guess that means technically I have NO budget. Crap. So I can either:
* wait years until I save up enough money to "do it right" with cabinets and countertops and the perfect lighting sconces and cute matching storage bins
* go through my stuff and figure out what I could live without
*actually list said stuff online instead of just letting it sit in a pile. For three weeks.
*take that money ($75 when all was said and done - I'M RICH!) and check Craigslist all summer until I had what I needed.....or close enough
*take that close enough stuff and make it work
Guess which option I chose.
