If you have been reading my blog very long, you will know how much I love "to do" lists. They are what drive me. Today my list was overwhelmingly long. All I really wanted to do was curl up on the sofa and read a good book and listen to the rain. But there is something that motivates me even more than my lists. A deadline. I think that without a deadline I would probably never get much done. But today I didn't have a choice - I have a client presentation due this week and a full calendar which left me with "today" only to get done what I needed to do; carpet to select, fireplaces to design, stone to pick out, that kind of thing.
But since I was out anyway, I added a few things of my own to my list - pick up soap, return jeans to Marshalls, purchase that Ikea rug I saw last week that will hide the dog hairs better than the black and white one did ...
|Tessa Ivory Quilted Leather Chair @ Overstock.com $295.99|
I did really well until I got to Marshalls. That is where I got side-tracked. I took a little spin through the store. I didn't need anything. I was almost out the door and then I saw it. Right there in the swimsuit department (go figure!) was the greatest looking leather chair.
I don't need another chair.
And I am not supposed to be spending money these days.
At least not on a chair that I don't even need.
But I was curious.
It was pretty cute and honestly,
I just wanted to know how much it was.
I was thinking ... maybe $299?
And so I checked.
It was eighty dollars!
Don't you just love a bargain?
