I am Happy Prancy Dancing all over the place. A few moments ago, the UPS man delivered a huge box from the Targets that I was not expecting until next week. In it was my new comforter and shams that I paid ZERO dollars for.
As in zip, zilch, nada. Zippo. Not one dollar at all!
I am a pretty good bargain shopper, and I use the Targets for my non-grocery househod items like shampoo and cleaning things. I also use the pharmacy for several of my prescriptions. If you're careful and plan your stock-ups, you can often get $5 gift cards with the purchase of multiples of things. So I saved and saved and saved these $5 gift cards until I had eight of them, and then guess what happened last week?
This set went on sale for $39.99!
I put it in my cart so fast I thought my iPad thingie was going to catch on fire!
I did spend $19 of my pin money on the red pillow and black fuzzy body pillow cover, but shipping was free and I didn't have to carry it up the steps...so I splurged.
I think the last time I bought a comforter was 1997, so I am very pleased that I was able to finally achieve my goal of a black and white bedroom without having to take out a mortgage. And...I was finally able to hang this little montage next to Stewey...so now it really does feel complete:
