A lot of things changed this week. Mainly, the price of every single thing I planned on buying ended up being substantially higher than originally estimated, except for the appliances. The cabinetry was over by $1700, the Caesarstone countertops by $900, the sink, faucet and backsplash tile: all over budget. So I had to make some decisions about what could stay and what had to go so that I could stay even close to my budget.
