Mine all mine… and for half price!
I love thrifting! The other day I found this treasure at Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch on 13th avenue in West Fargo. Most of the goodies there are straight from Target stores and are in great condition – and who doesn’t love Target?! So I saw this mirror the last time I was there visiting and almost bought it for $35. I was really, really close to buying it but thought I would go home and think about it for a few days just to be sure I still felt the same way about it.
My little rule of thumb is when I see something I love and the price is more than I feel comfortable dropping right away or feels like something I might change my mind about…WAIT! There is nothing worse than an impulse buy – I usually end up regretting it later! Well, I am happy to announce that WAITING is exactly what I planned to do when I left the store that day. I thought about the mirror, picked out a perfect spot for it, measured the wall, even mentioned it to my husband to see his reaction. The very next day in the mail was a coupon for 50% any item in the store under $50. I think my mailman is my guardian angel!! If he was still outside when I grabbed the mail, I would have been hugging him and jumping and screaming like a little girl 🙂 I packed Emma up and headed to the store that very day and brought home my prize, for about $18!! Doesn’t it look great in the bedroom:
What makes you happy?
