1. “baxton studio” chairs (x2) :: amazon :: $179.99 for set of 2 <i paid $143.50>
these are for brewster. we had those horrible, cheap as can be ikea chairs around the table and they had to be replaced. two sets of these ran me $269 – the bulk of my spendings – and really not bad at all for 4 chairs that i love.
2. black palm pillow :: h&m :: $10
a great sale price. i actually already have one of these and love it, so decided i needed another.
3. bully pillow :: h&m :: $9.95
4. duvet cover :: h&m :: $15
on sale.. what a steal! i already have this in a queen size for the basement bedroom. we are putting the finishing touches on an add’l (twin) bed (for riley’s visits!) from craigslist that we refurbished & will go down there as well.
5. ginham sheet set :: target :: $17.99
for the new twin bed as well.
6. down alternative comforter (x2) :: target:: $19.99 ea.
one for the basement twin and one for dane’s future big-boy bed (i’m a bit skeptical about how low this price is…. i haven’t received them yet, but expect they are pretty thin & i’m ok with that).
7. heart hooks :: h&m :: $5.95
these will go in the new basement bedroom as well. (i’m really trying to finally pull it all together!).
8. space heater (x2) :: amazon :: $19.99 ea.
fall is in the air but i want to wait as long as possible to fire up the gas heat. we have one of these in our bathroom & one in dane’s room, just for the chilly mornings.
9. oval jute rug :: rugs usa :: $174 <i paid $57.30>
yes, this was about 350% off. i got it during a crazy labor-day sale, but they are always running crazy sales and promotions, so i bet you’d have a pretty good chance of getting it 50-80% off as well. we are re-doing the sunroom floor in brewster (ripping up stained carpet). still weighing flooring options, but this rug will go on top.
10. toddler t :: mamacase prints :: $23
i snuck this one in for fun. its actually in my “gifts” expense category bc it’s for (liz: spoiler alert) riley’s 3rd birthday in november (look who’s planning ahead!). i pride myself on finding fun, unique, hipster clothes for dane via little mom & pop shops like this. they are usually printed on american apparel t’s which are so so soft!
mike – don’t kill me. and yes, i realize its only the 18th!!
