Bargain Hunting Triumph

We interrupt this regularly scheduled Sunday Etsy Favorites for a bargain announcement of ginormous proportions.

I FINALLY FOUND A COFFEE TABLE!!

And I practically stole it from JC Penney!

You see, as I mentioned here, I was having the worst of times deciding between coffee tables for our new place. And being newlyweds (or soon to be) I knew I could not spend much. Oh sure I could paint my parents' old table that they got when they were newlyweds, but that's just no fun. I wanted a pretty new piece, but at a bargain basement price. And that meant under $200. Preferably well under. (And yep, I'd scoured Craigslist, garage sales and flea markets too... no dice.)

If you visit my previous post on the subject I hash out all the details and choices, but I knew in my white-decor-loving heart, I wanted the round white coffee table all along. But at $400 it was just not cutting it. It went on sale, but was still $230. Nope, not doin' it.

That all changed today when I hopped on to the JCP web site just to pay my coffee table a little visit, and low and behold it was a President's Day half off sale! But at right at $200, I was still a little hesitant.

Being the resourceful girl I am, I searched my fave coupon sites until I found a coupon code for 15% off your entire purchase via RetailMeNot.com. Yes, please! I certainly can handle...

$169!!!!!


Perfect table. Perfect price. And I already had Matt's blessing, so I snatched it right up. Plus it's free shipping to the store (or that definitely would have been a factor), so it's even better.

Now our future living room will look a little like this...









Here's to bargain hunting success ... and online sales/coupons ; )
