This weeks question is:
How long have you lived at your current residence?

We bought this home 4 1/2 years ago.  This is the longest I have lived in one place (since I moved out of my parents house when I was 20).  The last 3 apartments I lived in were for about 3yrs each.  I am itching to purge "things", rearrange my furniture and reorganize.  That is one of the positive things about moving...going though everything you have and getting rid of things and decorating a new space. 

I want to use my current armoire that I have my tv in as closed storage (my house is tiny & I am in desperate need of clever storage) in my living room and replace it with this...

I already have this Expedit Bookshelf in my basement filled with bins and toys.  
(I LOVE it!)

I have been living in our house for 24 years. We had put the house on the market right before the housing market crashed. We are in the process of empty nesting and plan to put it back on the market when the last one leaves.

We started building our house almost 4 years ago. We've lived here 3 1/2 years. BUT we didn't have any kids at the time and we're quickly outgrowing our 3 bed/2 1/2 bath house. SO we're about to sell and buy/build again.

i lived in the same city since I was 5 but in my current house about 2 1/2 years. :)

Jennifer said...

We have lived here for 7 years.

I have lived in my home for three years now...it is the shortest time I have spent in one house. I lived with my parents for the first 18 years and then married and moved in with Hank and lived there for 7 years and then moved to our current residence.

Katie said...

We have lived in our house about 5 years - I'm ready to move, but hubby is quite content here - I think we're stuck until the economy improves, though!

We've lived here for about 6 months now. I just got an Ikea Expedit bookshelf for our TV and I love it. It it basically just two rows of 4 shelves across, so a lot smaller than the TV thing. I wish I had seen that first!

Cammi said...

We've been here a little over 3 years. And I need to do some major spring cleaning! Thanks for the idea of the IKEA bookshelf. I totally need one of those! Happy Friday :)

Braley Mama said...

I love that! Ok I want it too:)LOL, Isn't it funny when someone else likes something it makes it way more appealing:)

I have been living in this house for about 3.5 years. I love the house and the neighbors but I wish it was closer to where I really want to live. I am totally gonna go flip through my IKEA catalog now! I want one of those cool shelf thingy's too!

Kimberly said...

I've only lived in two different places my whole life. At home with my parents, and here at home with Shane. I can't imagine all that moving around!

I am currently staying at my parents...
Just until Marcs deployment is over...
very grateful...

Steph said...

We've been living here for my girls' age plus 3 weeks, so about 2 years 10 months!

We bought our house in December 2005. We decided to purchase a smaller house since we knew Sid would be leaving for college soon. Well, surprise, surprise 5 months later we found out I was pregnant with our little miracle baby! He was born 1 year and 1 day after we moved in!

This is the longest we've lived in a house (hubby was active duty usmc), but we are thinking about moving again to a little bit bigger house!

Sue said...

We have lived here for a little over 10 years.

Hope you have a great day♥

This is our third house as a married couple and we've been here for ten years. It is the longest I've ever lived in one place! Seriously.

I love the Expedit bookcases. We recently purchased one for our living room and absolutely love it. I'm seriously considering one for my studio as well. IKEA would have been a great place for us as newlyweds, but there wasn't one anywhere around.
