|Our new bedding|
I'm not really into the whole holiday shopping craze. I haven't seen anything I want or don't even know what I want. I'm just not motivated to expend the energy it takes to get out there this time of year. Sometimes it's even hard to know if you are really getting a special deal or not. I mean, it's probably going to be on sale for the same old price tomorrow and this whole Cyber Monday or Black Friday thing is just the store's way of increasing urgency to bring customers in. Well, I guess this Cyber Monday thing is for real. At least for what I got at Macy's.com. Mj finally said yes to this bedding set so I ran out to my car where I keep all my coupons and dug out a $50 off coupon on $200 + purchase. I resisted the urge to buy those cute little decorative pillows that match. We only have two with our other bedroom set and they spend most of the time in the corner on the floor. So this is what I got.
- Calvin Klein Cut Flowers Duvet set (Duvet + 2 shams) $99.99
- Calvin Klein Cut Flowers King Sheet Set ( 1 flat/fitted, 2 cases) $59.99
- Calvin Klein European Sham $24.99 ea X 2 $49.98
I log onto Macy's.com today to check out prices and these are the post Cyber Monday prices I found:
- Cut Flowers Duvet $162.99
- King Sheet Set $89.99
- European Sham $32.99 X 2 $65.98
It was the real deal! I saved a whopping $109 with Cyber Monday prices and another $50 on top of that with the coupon I had. Not bad for someone who wasn't even planning on buying anything. So I'm loving that I got such an awesome deal on an amazing 300 thread count complete bedding set but a little bit disgruntled over the fact that I just spent almost two hundred bucks on our second set of bedding when there are still so many other things we need for the house. We STILL have mostly blank walls and have hardly any decorating done. I still need to get that darn patio furniture set I want from Walmart! Jeez....maybe I should have checked out the Cyber Monday prices on that.
It's so strange how I was totally
