Deal of the Decade

Well, I'm home. Since my return, I have vacuumed, mopped, swept up dog hair, and dusted. Apparently, my husband doesn't think those things need to be done while I'm gone. The power is back on and so are my cleaning duties, I guess.

I had a great time visiting my mom. We shopped until we dropped yesterday. I would like to prepare you for what I am about to tell you. It is so amazing that it really deserves a post all to itself. I have been looking for a daybed to go in our downstairs guest bedroom (that isn't done, mind you). I had narrowed it down to a beautiful one in Crate and Barrel for $650.00. You know...pocket change. My mom (who really doesn't appreciate how lucky she is) lives a few minutes from a Pottery Barn outlet. Needless to say, I was filling up my cart, and I spotted this:

It is currently listed for $699.00. Uh, wha? The one in the outlet didn't have the cushions, so they marked it down. and down. and down some more. It was ticketed for (drum rolls here) $77.00. Here's the best part--I had a $50.00 gift card. For all who are mathematically challenged, that means I bought this sucker for $27.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's listed at almost $700.00, and I got it for $27.00!!!!!!!!!! Did you hear that, world?! When we loaded it into the car, my mom and I literally did a happy dance and high-fived in the parking lot. We. were. giddy.

As I said, this really deserves a post. I will come back later to show you all the other great finds from my no-power weekend. For now, please enjoy my savings splendor.

Deb said...

OMG!!!! That is fabulous. I would have been doing a happy dance in the store for all the world to see. And I would totally be shouting from the car on my way home, "Hey you see this? I got it for $27!!!" Those things just never happen to me.
