Here is the updated and revised list:

- Chest for Dimples (mahogany)
- Sleigh or Platform Bed (Dont know which one I want yet)
- LCD TV – 20’+
- Cell phone - Palm pilot or iPhone type
MP3 player - 2G or more= $15.99 Desktop computer (just the PC)= $60 Wolfgang Puck cookware set= $73.94 Microwave (black)= $0 (free) All Tyler Perry's Plays that are on DVD= $0 Transformers DVD= $10 Why Did I Get Married DVD= $0 Rolling File Cart= $8.56 Shredder= $14
I also purchased a 2G Sansa MP3 player courtesy of Slickdeals.net. It is a reconditioned player and it was on sale at Buy.com for $25.99. I used google checkout and since I was a first time customer I received $10 off my order. And shipping was free (budget shipping).
After doing my feng shui thing, my old furniture didn't seem so old anymore. I moved my "office" out of my bedroom and into the living room leaving me with a lot of space. I currently have a huge solid oak dresser and my queen size bed in my room. I want to trade the dresser for a tall 5 or 6 drawer chest and also incorporate a chaise into the mix. I am really liking this chest @ Ikea:
It's only $129. I am going to sell my current dresser and use the money from that to buy a chest. I listed my dresser on Craig's List today for $150. I am going to check out the local used furniture store and see if they have anything cheaper.
In regards to the chair or chaise, something like this would be nice:
@ Ikea for $159 (adjustable back)
Though I would prefer something like this:
On Craig's List for $300 (way out my price range)
My budget is $200 for both chaise and chest. I am selling the dresser I have and some other items on eBay and Amazon. If all of my items sell then I will have made about $370. I'll use that money to buy my chaise and new dresser and then put the rest in my fun account for my trip to Atlanta in March (get into that later).
