Pillow Talk

I have loved this pillow since the first week it appeared at Target. I know, that sounds silly. To some of you.

I noticed her every time I visited the store, but at $20, I wasn't ready for a commitment. I was ready to wait.

This week I went to Target just to see what clearance I'd find in the Home section. Because the end of January and early February is clearance hunting season for lovers of decorating and Target. Because they're about to clear out for the next season/year. Frames, oh the frames, sheet sets, vases, pillows.

Clearance. The real kind. The 50% or more kind.

I've carried out this tradition since 2005.

And so this week I found her, 50% off. Just under $10. And she was mine. If you look closely, you will find a piece of pug hair. Ah, the dogs have already made themselves at home with her.

No guilt, no impulse-buyer's remorse. I saw and admired from afar, set my limits, and reaped the rewards of patience.

And that is why I love living well for less.

Awesome deal! I waited for a $26 purse until it was $11 bucks. It sure does feel good to wait for a deal on something you want. Congratulations!

Thanks for the tip about going to Target at the end of Jan/early Feb. I better get there in the next few days to check out if I can get any deals too!
