That's funny, and you're right :-) I actually did this years ago--a friend got suddenly transferred to France and I bought the contents of her whole apartment, sending her payments monthly (it was right when I was moving and I could use everything she had, pretty much). Things went awry and she had to move back, so I stopped paying her for the last few months she was away, then gave her stuff back when she came back. Basically, I "rented" her stuff, which turned out fine since it gave us time to pick out our own stuff.

There wasn't any rhyme or reason to what I paid for--she gave me a Kitchen Aid mixer, a pricy juicer, a leather jacket, but then couldn't sell a $300 lamp she'd tagged at $50 so I bought that and some other things.

There's going to be a lot of things that she'll be asking about that I'll be telling her "nope, I gave that away".

One of those friends who keeps life interesting.
