My Bargain of the Year

During "Appendectomy 2011", while on one of my many Target scrip runs, I found green curtain panels that I thought would be perfect for our office.  They were $24.99 each.  

The only problem was that there was only one curtain panel at our Target and I needed 2.  I bought the one and thought I would snag a matching one on another Target trip.  But then every time I went to Target and checked, they didn't have any of that same green striped curtain that we liked.  

I finally decided to look for the curtain online....AND THEY WERE SOLD OUT!!!  I immediately called my Target store and asked if they had any in stock.  THEY DIDN'T!  They gave me 2 stores near-by that had them.  I called the one store and verified that they had one left, but was told that they could not hold it for me because it was now on clearance.  Between a napping 17 month-old and a kindergartener to pick up, I couldn't get to Target right away.  

When I finally got to Target around 7 PM that curtain was still there!  But now it was on clearance for $17!  And...there were actually TWO of my curtain panels there!  Since I'm crazy, I still had the receipt and packaging for the original curtain panel at home.  So, I bought the 2 curtains on clearance for $34 and returned the original $24.99 curtain the next day.

I'm loving finally having some window treatments!      


  1. I love the curtains. I love the chair cover too! Did you make it or buy it? I have some chairs I want to cover.

      I wish I was talented enough to make slipcovers!!!

  2. Smart cookie! I'm not sure that would've occurred to me. :)
