I have been wanting a new rug for my dining room for over a year now. I was at Target a couple weeks ago and was looking through the rugs. I found one that I've been eyeing for a while. It was originally $179, and marked down to $99. Karli at RockyBella has it here. She only paid $10 for her's, though. What a steal! How can you compete with that? : ). Plus, it was green and brown and my dining room is blue and brown. Then, I looked over and found this one...
It's a great graphic pattern and a neutral stone colored brown and cream. I thought it would definitely work. And it was only $64 - originally $129.99. I thought that was a great price for a 5x8 rug. So, I snagged it up. Since we are in the process of packing for our upcoming move, she has been patiently waiting all wrapped up in the dining room floor. Well, I was at Target again, a few days ago and I strolled through the rug aisle. There was the green and brown one that I adored and what was the price? $44!! It wasn't as great a deal as Karli got, but it was still pretty good considering this rug was $179 originally. I so wanted it, but was still trying to reason with myself about whether I NEEDED it or not. Then, I looked over and found my brown and cream rug's twin. I looked at it and the price was $32!!! Instantly, I threw it in the buggy and green one, too.
I knew that I still had the receipt for the one I'd bought previously and it was still wrapped up since we are moving and I didn't plan on putting it out until the move. So I bought them both for $76 only $12 more than the one rug originally. I just took the $64 rug back the next day and got a refund. I was sooooo excited! I'm planning to put the green/ brown rug in our bonus room. Right now, they are just keeping each other company until they find their permanent homes at the new house!
