In our first days in Bismarck we spend time with my mom and aunt and get settled in the Airbnb. I make trips to local grocery stores, as well as Dollar Tree and Walmart to fit out the apartment more to our liking. Like many Airbnb’s this one is reasonably equipped for a long weekend or even a week, but since we’ll be here for a month there are some things which can be inexpensively acquired and will make day-to-day life just a little better. We also make a stop at a local resale shop and pick up a chair as the dining table has four and we know we will have a total of five people for dinner a few times during our stay. Now the Airbnb feels more like home!
