Great prices to pad my floors!
I went to our GW last Saturday (their 1/2 price day) and bought 3 large comforters, a blanket (lt green velvety type) and a small quilt, red flannel pjs with white Micky Mouse figures on 'em, another pr of flannel pj bottoms, about 6 trays, 2 bowls and a lovely metal pot/container with embossed designs on it.
I think that's about it for about 44.00.
The comforters are to pad the floor beside my bed for my old girl when she jumps off the bed (when I'm not there to help her). I'll have 1 to put down when I have to take the one in use to the laundromat. I'll put them on the floor at the foot of my bed and on one side in the new place. The other side I have bins stacked up so she won't fall off. 1 has Scoobie Doo on it - girl should love it!
the blanket is just like one i have for my bed - but smaller, maybe twin bed size. thought that'd be nice to curl up in while watching tv. Not a mark on it - looked new.
the small quilt is for puppy - when she outgrows the chewing stage. I gave her one of girl's quilts the other wk when so cold here. She chewed a bunch of it off! She won't get another til she 'grows up'! lol! she has a rug and 2 fleece blankets tho.
The comforters were 7.50 - 10.00 each, the blanket 3.00 and the quilt was around 3.00 (half price). I stopped in earlier in the week and they were running 15 - 20.00 and I didn't want to pay that so I went back hoping they still had some. They still had a good selection of them - i could have bought more. Had to restrain myself.
The trays are to put on the cabinet shelves to use as 'pull outs'. they were .50 - 1.00 each. 2 of the larger ones fit on either side under the kitchen sink. 1 is a clear plastic with a slight grn tint with embossed veggies on the bottom. It's very nice and I think might be better used on a fridge shelf. Next time I go I'll take measurements for the bathroom under sink spaces.
the bowls @ .30 each are for dog dishes. they can go into the dw. I've looked at W and their dog dishes run about 8.00. all I've seen there for months are black with dark brown combo on them - don't like that. I figure these'll work fine at a lot less $s!
The pjs I just grabbed off a rack as I headed to the cashiers. They were cute and will come in handy since i don't get to the laundromat very often. I'll need to hem the bottoms since I'm so short but I can do that by hand while watching tv at night.
the metal pot/container I think I'll use in the mstr bath for the toilet brush holder(with the bottom of a plastic
bottle inside of it).
It was a great shopping spree! Might have shopped more except it was rainy out here and getting late - and dark. I wanted to be home by total dark.
I went to the laundromat this past Thurs. to wash all of those comforters/blankets up. Wouldn't bring inside til i did. I didn't get one done - i had the large washers filled already. i'll take it next trip - i'll probably be over there this next week. i don't go that way often but our restore is by it so I think I'll be going there next week to look around.
