Quick question for girls living with FH?

I've been living with FH for about 3 years now. Mostly everything we have has been passed down to us from others. So, I had my shower last month and I have all these gifts in my living room right now just taking up space.

Did any of you use any of your registries before the wedding? Did you just keep them all in boxes until after the wedding? Plus, after the wedding and HM, when did you actually find time to put everything away and get all settled?

Is it bad luck to put things away/use them now?

What to do, what to do, what to do?

Re: Quick question for girls living with FH?

I used everything from my shower, with the exception of a few things that are seasonal and meant for other times of the year. Other than that, I opened everything, washed what needed to be washed and put it all to good use immediately!

Re: Quick question for girls living with FH?

I didn't have a shower because we bought a home and had a housewarming and I still had all the new stuff in the basement.,.....

BUT.....I would start putting things away now and using them..JMO

Same here. We will wait until we move into a home before we use the new items; but where are we going to store it? Good questions, I guess I'll know when that time comes.

Re: Quick question for girls living with FH?

Since it'll only be 2 months till the wedding, we'll probably wait until we're married. We've been living together for about 9 months so we have a lot, but still need a lot!

We'll probably break out the chocolate fountain, blender, etc before the wedding, but our casual dinnerware and stuff like that we'll wait to use.

Re: Quick question for girls living with FH?

I haven't had my shower yet, but I def. plan on using the gifts when I get them. I am sure people don't expect you to put them away till your married, that would be a waste! Use them, ENJOY!!!

Re: Quick question for girls living with FH?

We'll be using some stuff right after our shower, although most stuff will be saved for our first house (china, etc.)

Re: Quick question for girls living with FH?

We are moving into our new place this weekend and I plan on using everything we've gotten from our registries, because we have nothing else - no dishes, no flatware, etc

Re: Quick question for girls living with FH?

My shower is not until next month, but then again so is the wedding. We're not buying a house anytime soon, so we will probably just use what we can before the wedding.

Re: Quick question for girls living with FH?

I've only used a few of the gifts we got as engagement presents.

All other e-gifts and shower gifts I will save until we move into a house (hopefully in the fall).

It's all piled up in my kitchen so far.

Re: Quick question for girls living with FH?

We received a lot of things for our E-party from our registry. Most are in the spare room in boxes. The only reason being I don't have time to rearrange our kitchen to accomodate the new stuff!

I've never heard of it being bad luck, we started using stuff the very next day!! No sense in having it and not being able to use it!!

Re: Quick question for girls living with FH?

We have matching living rooms!

There is so much stuff in our living room that I need to put away immediately. We will definitely use the new stuff when needed.

Good luck to both of us on cleaning everything up.
