What a deal!

I read different blogs and posts about some wonderful deal someone got somewhere.  All the while knowing I’ve never nor will I ever run across anything like what I see.  I either don’t have an eye for them or am in the wrong place at the wrong time, that is until the other day.  It was finally my turn!  oh yeah!

For over a year I’ve been looking for a new rug for under our desk.  Oh, I’ve seen rugs I like but frankly I’m too cheap conservative to pay the price tags I’ve seen.  However, a few days ago as I was wandering through JCPenneys, I decided to take one more spin through the rug department.  As I was walking down the aisle, I saw a pink clearance sticker.  I looked at the “now price” and looked yet again.  This can’t be, it’s not possible that a 5 x 8 rug that was $220 is now $9.97?!?  It was bigger than what I could use at the desk & probably not a pattern that would have been my first pick but for that price, I can adjust and make it work somehow. 

It didn’t take me long to stake my claim and drag this big roll of rug to the cash register just knowing that they were going to tell me it was  a mistake but they didn’t!  Unbelievable!  Plus, the checker had a coupon laying there for another 15% off, so I ended up with an overpriced $220 rug for $9.26 with tax.  I haven’t been that excited with a purchase for a long, long time.

Where did I end up using it? 


In our sunroom and the rug that was in the sunroom fit perfectly at the desk.  Now that’s a good deal!

  6. I have a daughter that can spot a deal anywhere. She amazes me. I just don't have that gift either. I LOVE that rug you purchased and I LOVE the price! That is amazing.
