My sister and her fluffy dog Kumar made the big move to FL on Thursday! And we are loving having them live so close by. Caitlin did the whole “let’s move 1,000 miles away with no furniture” deal so today hubs and I accompanied her on a “let’s furnish the entire apartment, but try to spend as little money as possible” shopping spree. And man oh man did we succeed. For this mission I knew exactly where we needed to go: the clearance outlet at Rooms to Go. I’m telling you, if you don’t live near a Rooms to Go Super Center you are missing out. This place is a gold mine, but you totally have to go in there with the right mindset. Cait, hubs and I entered that outlet like we were entering battle. Here’s the deal: The place is full of awesome furniture at awesome deals, but on a first come first serve basis. See it, grab the price tag, and get that sold tag smacked on before someone else snatches the goods. There’s no thinking no “we’ll come back laters,” you want it, it’s now or never. And let me tell you, we were on a MISSION so Cait and I ran around that store, securing deals like it was our job.
And I might have yelled, “Get back to the couch!!” at one point when I over heard a couple trying to make a move on the couch we had our eyes on. And Cait leaped over two ottomans and ripped that tag off before that couple knew what hit them. I’m telling you, we are outlet shopping superstars. And let me just say, we did gooooood. And tomorrow, that apartment will finally stop echoing when the delivery truck comes with her triumphant winnings.
It was a long, fun, successful day. Hubs and I were even lucky enough to score a great deal on an area rug for the family room so my feet will finally stop freezing on the tile floor. Now I’m off to continue devouring the Hunger Games trilogy. One book down, two more to go!
