We've been on a bargain shopping kick around my house lately. I still haven't found the right lamps that I'm looking for, but I'm on the hunt. I recently bought a new bedding set from a private seller on Craigslist for $50—I would have paid at LEAST $150 in a store for the same set. My husband just got a brand NEW Orvis fly fishing pole from another Craigslist seller for $150—normal retail for the pole is $365!! We also gained one more step closer to being done with our kitchen remodel when we purchased our backsplash tile at a great price from Home Depot. Our goal is to get flooring in the next month or so. I also made my first no-sew pillow cover! Woo-hoo! I'll share more on that in another post, soon. Now, on to WFW!
