The same goes for any other type of shopping. But, get me out the door and I am all for finding a bargain for something I have wanted, but wouldn't pay a high price for. One of those items came to me as I was in a local home improvement store with my daughter. She found it. There in her hands was a door mat for my small porch. The perfect size and the perfect design. Made out of cocoa shreds and embellished with a fancy letter 'D' that represents my last name.
My heart jumped! I had been looking for one for more years than I can remember. And, get this, not 30.00 or 40.00, but 6.96. 6.96!!!! Woohoo! I hit pay dirt.
On top of that it is the same one I saw in a Frontgate catalog just this spring. You know, the catalog that thinks it's attractive to charge 10000 times what an item sells for on the open market. I don't know why they feel I would be interested in parting with my money for their bottom line. Just stop sending me the catalog. Maybe not. I get to see the difference in their prices and the real world outlet prices. Come to think of it, that works for me.
The porch is small so I needed a smaller mat. The flowers were a gift from a friend of my daughter's. The debris is a gift from the last rain storm we had.
