Got Me Again

A few months ago I made the horrible mistake of going through a Pottery Barn Kids catalogue. In the catalogue there was a girls bedroom that I fell in love with. I tore out the picture and it has been on my bulletin board in the kitchen ever since.

The primary focus of the perfect Pottery Barn room were the white bunk beds. Clearly well-made but clearly overpriced, I started my search for similar white bunk beds.

My search eventually led me to a Kids Bedroom store. You would not believe how hard it is to find white bunk beds. Not pine. Not cherry. Not mahogony. Just white. But I finally found them at this one store. And they were just too much.

A little while later I saw a sign in the window of said store that they were closing down to open back up with a new name and new inventory. Therefore "Everything Must Go!" Hot dog! The next day, I drove to the store, so excited to make a deal.

A deal was not in the works. The price, despite the sign in the window, had not budged.

A few weeks later I tried again when they reopened. It was a Grand Opening! SALE! SALE! SALE! So I dragged my girls again, so excited to make a deal.

A deal was not in the works. The price, despite the sign in the window, had not budged.

But this weekend I saw a new sign in the window. Clearance Sale! Everything Must Go! Everything in the store was 40 - 70 percent off! So this morning I dragged my girls back to the store, excited to make a deal.

A deal was not in the works. The price, despite the sign in the window, had not budged.

I hate this store.
