I hate spending money. I actually feel guilty when I spend money on things that I think might not need to have been spent, it is seriously an issue! For example, I never purchase clothing for myself because I think the money could be better spent but because of that I have a seriously sad wardrobe. With that being said, if I find a good deal on something we’ve patiently been waiting for you bet I’ll get it. This is more of a brag post than anything else but here are a few things we have accumulated recently for a great savings.
Our dining chairs. I had a very specific style of chair in my mind: Parson’s style, but with an arched top, nail heads, and beige, but I didn’t want pleather, or vinyl. With that, I searched for months patiently waiting for the good deal I knew I would come across. Someday. Well that someday came when I found our amazing chairs on Wayfair (which no longer sells them).
When I purchased them they were selling in pairs for $131.98. That is only $65.99 a chair! Absolute steal. We already had a dining table which can seat 10 comfortably, or 12 cozily, so we purchased three sets just under $400, and received two sets for our Christmas gift from family. They can be purchased on Amazon for $302.92 for a pair, or at National Furniture Supply for $209.18 a pair.
Baby Prison. Or better known as a baby play yard. When Elizabeth is outside with out she has to be in an enclosed area without access to the grass, since she eats absolutely everything; grass, dirt, pine cones, pine needles, leaves, etc..
We actually found this exact play yard at a yardsale a couple weekends ago for $15. Steal! It sells at Walmart for just over $60.
Baby gates. We have desperately needed. We purchased two of these staircase approved baby gates at another yardsale we stopped by.
Trundle daybed with storage. Lastly, this one I have been so so patient about, but I have been absolutely searching local buy/sell/trade pages, craigslist, and bookoo for an ikea daybed. It had to be ikea because I wanted the trundle to be the same bed as the main bed, not an additional bed “underneath” the main bed, if that makes sense. I also wanted the storage.
I found the Ikea Brimnes Daybed at a yardsale and purchased it for $100. They sell at ikea for $279.99. I was dreaming about the hemnes bed, but for a savings of $200 (taxes), I was more than ecstatic to purchase the brimnes bed. Yardsales forever! Seriously!
I love finding great deals and hope continue being lucky, and to learn to coupon, someday…
