Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Mine was aii-ight. My house is a mess cuz I bought LOTS of fun things for it. Went to JCPenny’s on Saturday for some outdoor patio pillows and a wood blind for the last window in my house. When I originally bought for all of the windows in the house, I totally forgot about the window in my master bedroom closet. How would I forget about THAT window, you ask? Well lucky me has two, yes TWO, master bedroom closets and that isn’t the one that I use for my clothes. I have a few things stored in there but I never go into it since it’s technically my future husband’s closet and I want to respect his space. For now. J I saved a crap ton of money at Penny’s though. Everything I bought was 60% off original price plus I had 3 coupons for $10 off when you purchase $25 or more. Two pillows were $28 so I used 2 of the $10 coupons for a total of 4 pillows and the blind was $23 so I went and grabbed a hand towel for $2.99 so that I could get the other $10 coupon off of that. Frugal Kristi here. Got to save that green so that I can buy other pretty things for the house. When I went to Lowe’s after that, I’m glad I saved that $30 earlier. I went there for a “few things” and ended up with about $100 more in merchandise than I actually needed…but you know… J
Now Lowe’s and I have a love/hate relationship. I would much prefer Home Depot to Lowe’s. But Lowe’s is a quick 5 minute ride down the road whereas Home Depot is about 20 minutes. So a "quick trip" usually ends up at Lowe’s. I went there with a list- cuz yes I am one of those people. I make lists about making lists. I love lists. I love checking things off lists. LOVE LISTS! Anyway, I went for spray paint (one furniture project), stain (stair rail and spindles and eventually dining table), drawer sliders (another furniture project) and sheets of metal (don’t even ask). I ended up in the rug area (clearly- not on the list. At all.) I figured it doesn’t hurt to look since I’ll eventually need a rug for both the living and dining rooms. You know, 5 years from now when I eventually put down my hardwood floors. And when I say “I put down” I really mean my dad, Jon, some other
suckers guys- while I supervise. J Anyways- found a few that would work with my color scheme downstairs but definitely didn’t buy them. And not because it won’t happen until 5 years from now, but because I didn’t measure either area that I needed them for. I seriously have no will power- because if I had the measurements, I totally would’ve bought them.
