The Question Club
So I have a friend who is moving out of his shared house, and into his own house soon. His shared house was furnished already so all he'll have is his bed, desk, computer, computer chair, and personal items. He doesn't even have a wardrobe or book cases or a chest of drawers or anything. I doubt that his new rental place will come with furniture or kitchen stuff, like a fridge or anything like that.|
I'll be trying to lend him a few things, (like ... folding chairs and tables. Maybe some plates, cups and cutlery... I don't have much myself, since I live at home) and he'll be hanging out here obsessively for a few weeks I'm sure lol, but... the question is. In what order should be buy stuff? What are the absolute basic essentials that he should buy first? (furniture and kitchen supply wise) And he's not rich, and right now he doesn't have a job either, but he's looking for one.
For say, $20-$30, (I'm poor too. woe) what should/could I get him for housewarming presents that are useful? I was originally going to go for something fun like a really little water feature, but now I'm thinking I should try to help out in some other way (though he'll probably jokingly tell me that i'm no fun. :P) Oh and he's not so poor that he wont' be able to afford paper towels or something, so I don't mean things like cleaning products.
