Bargain of the day...

So there is this oober famous blogger (who shall remain nameless simply because I don't like the things she says on her blog, and I can do that because THIS is MY blog) who posts a daily bargain of the day on her blog. Now she self proclaims to make nearly $40,000 a month from her blog, so my question is - what kind of bargains does she need to be finding?

I mean, $800 for a Dolce and Gabbana purse or $1200 for a authentic Tiffany's diamond ring may be an excellent bargain - but what about the people whose last car didn't cost $1200 - what about them?

Well, that is when I come into play...

You see, not only do I like bargains, I MUST shop for bargains (or so my husband says), so as not to go over our budget. If you are asking yourself, "What's a budget?" then maybe this post isn't for you.

HA! Only kidding.

But I do want to share my fabuloso bargain with all of you, mostly because I am so stinkin proud of it.

When hubby and I first got engaged, we knew we wanted a glorious bedroom set. We knew we wanted a king size bed that fit all of our future children, and that would be so comfortable. Well, we found it, but in true bargain style - we found it in the ding and dent center of an upscale furniture store. The only problem with buying in this section is you often can't find coordinating pieces. This is exactly what happened to us.

Nonetheless, we bought the bed (and we LOVE it!), but I was promised that very afternoon that we would find end tables and a dresser to match it in the near future.

Well, we have been married nearly four years, and no end tables or dresser - unless you count the nasty dresser we inherited from Ben's bachelor days complete with scratches and some sort of ickyness that will not come off and the two TV trays we were using as end tables. We went without, not because Ben went back on his promise, but we couldn't find anything we loved that was in our price range. We knew we wanted something funky and thin that would still hold our lamps, baby monitor and remote (that is very important to Ben).

During an impromptu shopping trip to Burlington Coat Factory (I know - weird huh?), we found the end tables. Well, we found ONE end table. But the store found us another at a nearby store and we snatched them up immediately. Once I got them home, I loved them even more.

Especially since they only cost $40 a piece!!! Now THAT is what I call a bargain.

Who knew a post about end tables could be so long?
