Andrew and I don't have time to shop around. In fact, Andrew and I don't have time for a lot of things which is why we forced inspired our bridal party to spend Family Day assembling our wedding invitations. But I digress.

We went to IKEA on date night to pick out furniture for our new apartment. In the "As Is" section, we came across a couch. But not just any couch.

IKEA's top-of-the-line couch. At a 98% discount.

As we drove out of the parking lot, after having also purchased our bed (on sale), our box spring (on sale), our mattress (on sale), our duvet (50% off), two bookshelves, and a slipcover for The Couch, Andrew was still marveling at what we had saved.

"We just bought a couch for $25. A $1,000 couch for $25. I feel like we stole something. 98% discount. I need a cigarette."

That was actually Andrew Gazaneo's exact quote.
