I wanted to find out what items I should ship. Are there items you wish you had brought? I will need queen & twin beds, 2 mattresses, sofa, loveseat or chair, coffee table, small desk, dining table & chairs. I want to know how much to budget for furniture. It doesn't have to be top of the line but I want to get good mattresses and a comfortable sofa. Is it worth looking for a furnished apartment (I've heard it limits your choices). Are there enough English-speaking TV channels to justify bringing or buying a TV? Is it easy or difficult to sell furniture if you want to upgrade to better quality? What about small kitchen appliances? Thanks for your input!
