Couch Update

We bought a couch! Well, sort of. My roommate convinced us to go in for a couch. It's not a great idea, but it's not awful either. We're getting a $150 couch. It was on Craigslist for $250, but we talked to the guy down to $150. It's a fairly nice, 4-year-old couch from Macys that was originally $1200. Instead of any one of us buying the entire couch we're splitting it $50 each. I'd really prefer not to purchase any portion of the couch, but we figured that is the best way for us to get a couch that everyone will be happy with. A free couch would likely be somewhat gross... this couch is rather nice. We could probably resell it when we move out... we could prob sell it for $100 at least. So it's not too big of a deal. The only problem is that likely one of us (me) will move out before the other two... so I'll just "lose" my $50. Except it's kind of like $50 to rent a couch for a year or so. At least. Not a bad deal. We need a couch. Our chair setup is getting so so old.

They could always buy out your share once you move...maybe at a reduced price, like $20 each. That seems like the fair way to do it, especially since you'll only be around a year or two more. But as you said, living with an actual couch during that time might be worth your $50.
