I now own a new couch. I bought it for $5,000 from a friend of my parents who works at Jordan's in Kelowna. The couch is a leather sectional and quite similiar to the one my parents have in their Vancouver apartment, so I know it's tops for comfort and coolness.
I had been hoping to spend less than $5,000 but apparently unless you're buying Ikea couches they tend to be more money that one would expect. Even my brother's fake leather couch is $3,000. But as March nears so does moving into my new apartment, so owning furniture is a good idea I suppose.
