Does Buying Furniture Stress You Out?

I bought my first couch over the weekend. In previous apartments, I'd had hand-me-down furniture or furniture that I purchased with my roommate. So this was a major purchase for me, and I have to say, it kind of stressed me out.

I was worried about making the wrong decision when it came to spending such a large amount of money on a piece that is going to be a central part of my home. What if it isn't comfortable for everyone? What if it shows dirt? What if it doesn't hold up well to normal wear and tear?  What if, what if, what if…


But after seeing the sofa in person a couple of times, taking a friend to see it, and comparing it to other options, I think I'll be happy with my decision. (The photo above is of the sofa I purchased, but in grey instead of white.) But I'll have to wait until it's delivered to be sure.

Are you like me? Do you stress out about making large purchases for your home?
