I'm on a budget.. who isn't now right? The quest to prettify my house has been a little bit harder.
When I went on this shopping day
in November of last year, (funny post, you should read it some time,) I saw this little chest of drawers. Now I could paint something like this.. but I really liked this exact one.
My eyes met it's knobs from across the room and it was love...Weeeeeellll... for $199 it was more like lust.. Every month, I would go in to the store and it would still be there marked down just a tad more. As I drooled over it and caressed the top( to wipe off the drool) and I'd think(sigh)... maybe...
This went on for months... if it were a real relationship I would've been called a stalker by now...So after months of pining and glancing, I had saved a little fun money and I went it for this Kim Parker.
And there it still was , the object of my affection... with a slightly wonky drawer! Marked down to $100! Hmmm.... Knowing what I know about the retail business ( I worked at Marshall's for a stint.. not recommended.) and the economy, I approached the manager...
"I really like this and I know it is on clearance, but this drawer is broken..."(Wiggle. wiggle.)
"mmmhmmmm."Said the manager.
"I was wondering if there is any way this could be marked down just a little more to fit my budget. It would leave today." (puppy dog eyes.)
"HHHmmmmmm." Said manager again.
So for $90.00 I scored my heart's desire! So don't be afraid to ask so your love story can come true... The worst they can do is have you escorted politely from the store, with a big, strong man on each arm.
