Retail HEAVEN

Many of you know, I recently moved to RETAIL HEAVEN. I can get to 1,000s of stores (all kinds) within a 5-10 minute drive. I am stunned (truly) with all of the stores that I have access to. Some are so close (Target) I can drive in opposite directions for equal distances (less than 5 miles) and find whatever I want that is missing from the other store.

FOR EXAMPLE:

Today, I went to the beloved TARGET.... and bought 2 of these, One of these,
and one of these
BECAUSE THEY WERE ALL 50% OFF!

The funny thing is... when I went to a different Target tonight to get the matching foot stool (which they had) They weren't on SALE! Not even for a discount! I couldn't believe it! So, if you have been wanting to buy some patio furniture, but didn't want the bill.. Check your local (or not so local) Target, because it MIGHT be 50% OFF! If it is... RUN, because, it will sell out FAST!

Luckily, my retail Karma didn't wear off because later I went to Pier One to buy these for my laundry room: I saw them in their latest catalog and fell in love... Guess what. They used to be $199, and now they are on clearance, yep, clearance for $119. Yippee! I love it when my dreams come true for almost 1/2 price!
They also had this cute little thing for $20. Perfect for the front door, and you KNOW how I love something on the front door!


I also bought a FABULOUS, INCREDIBLE WALL PLAQUE, that I can't find a picture of on-line.. so, you will have to wait until I hang it to take a look. (I'll post a pic) Hopefully I have made your shopping a little easier.. ENJOY!

I promise to post about our "adjustments" tomorrow!

Lindsey, Love the blog and all the cute stuff you bought. I am the worst shopper. I seriously need some help. I don't know why I can't do it. I am just not out shopping enough to find any good deals and I never shop any where that great. So I guess that's I have why settled with my bland decor.

Lindsay said...
