    Plans are coming together for Whidbey

    Advertisements
    Well we got the editted orders and kenny leaves the lincoln on March 11th!So we have been scrambling to get a place and all for when he has to starts up there, and for ethan and i to join him at after the wedding/spring semester. We think we have a place lined up right in Oak Harbor. It wasn't our first choice, that got a contract on it an hour before we went in to apply for it but the other place is pretty good to so we are excited to make sure everything goes through and to get everything moved up and set up! Anyone know the best place to buy a washer and dryer? it has hookups but obviously we need to provide our own. The other thing we need to get is a couch.

    Then we are about set! Im excited to move up there! Hurry up may!

    thanks for the info! i know my family has bought washer/dryers from sears in the past they tend to be fairly good quality at a reasonable price so we will have to stop by there and see!
    how is the oak harbor furniture store? has anyone ever gone there to purchase anything?

    we heard the NEX home furnishings only carries high end so even though you dont pay tax, its not a deal. anyone else know about this?

    We got our washer and dryer from the PX. We paid approx $300 for each. And we got an extended warranty. We went with cheap and functional, though. We didn't want to get anything fancy.

    I wouldn't go on post for furniture, it's really expensive. I'd check Craigslist or freecycle. And there are a lot of little used furniture shops in the area too (which is to be expected in any military area).

    we got our washer and dryer from the nex. Also, we have bought several pieces of furniture through them at reasonable prices, you just need to make sure you shop around. The nex is always having sales too.

    we got it all (washer/dryer), a couch, and a love seat for 1500 at the NEX, not too bad! Its getting delivered next week. So we will have the place functional then. Moving this weekend was so tiring but its really exciting to have the place be "ours!"

    OHH and we ended up with our 1st choice after all. the original contract ended up not going through so we totally lucked out!
