I don’t need a refrigerator. I just won’t buy things that need to be cold.
A refrigerator is pretty expensive but I think it is worth it for cold water, fresh meat, and keeping things at an FDA approved standard of edibleness.
I will buy a refrigerator and a refrigerator for the air AKA an air conditioning unit
I don’t need a mattress. I have a sleeping bag.
I will buy a mattress I don’t want to have life long back problems.
I will buy a mattress, box spring, and frame. It will be 3rd world temperpedic! I will donate it to a starving African child afterwards.
You want to go to the capital? I only have 2000 U.S. dollars. I am saving that for my death.
We could probably get this reimbursed by medical.
The capital of what country?
I don’t see how people spent their whole settling in allowance.
I don’t feel quite settled in.
I don’t need to buy a bucket to wash my clothes. I will just wash them in the river.
I could probably realistically afford a washing machine or use one of my neighbors and just buy my own soap.
Where can I buy a washer and a dryer?
I want to live like the local people!
Local people have everything you are living without. You will never be like local people because you have an American passport.
I want to hire a local person to clean my house.
It is only 2 years. I can live without wifi.
It is 20 U.S. dollars and absolutely worth every local currency cent.
It is only 2000 US dollars I can afford a new laptop.
This phone is a nokia and it still serves me well.
Google maps is pretty important. I think I will get some type of smart phone.
Can the newest iphone be shipped to my hut?
