No, I'm not getting lucky tonight...lol. This song popped into my head after what happened this morning. Let me explain.
Remember my laptop I bought recently? After writing my previous blog post, I immediately went to purchase one for DS too. Except, it was OOS!! I wanted to cry, because I knew that I could've purchased it earlier that day. I then figured that DS could just continue using what he currently has, until I can find another good laptop deal.
When I checked the site (Walmart) the next morning, I saw that the laptop was back in stock (weird). So I immediately went ahead and purchased it. A few hours later, it was sold out again. Then the next day I received an email that said "sorry, your order is being delayed". No way! I don't care how long that item is delayed, I just want it shipped. I don't want an OOS email. So I added another one (it was back in stock again) to my cart just to see how much inventory they have, in case they cancelled my order (they already cancelled an item for DS's Christmas project. Thankfully, Target has the item too). Last night I received notification that the item has shipped. Phew! Another huge sigh of relief.
Then this morning, I received an email saying that the item in my cart has a huge price drop. No frigging way!!!!! I immediately contacted CS (gotta love Live Chat) and explained the price drop email and asked if I could get a price adjustment on the laptops. 'Of course Ms Goose. Let me work on it for you'. Ten minutes later, I received a $171 price adjustment!!! Whoo hoo!! Happy dance!! I felt like doing cartwheels. What a great way to start my day! 50% off my new laptops! Heck yeah, I'll take it!!
Never ever would I have thought that I'd get the laptops at such a low price. Had I purchased a new laptop when my old one broke, I would've paid full price. Instead I now have 2 laptops for the price of one. Do you all now see why I trust my gut instincts and how those stumbling blocks turn into blessings? I wouldn't have added another laptop to my cart, had I not received notification of a delay. That means I wouldn't have received an email about the price drop either, cause my cart would've been empty. Now you know why I am so excited & I just can't hide it!!!
In other news. Stores just keep sending me rewards. WHBM keeps sending me $5 rewards for being a certain level shopper. Too weird. Eddie Bauer sent me another $10 reward - just because. The more I don't need anything, the more stores keep sending me rewards. So what's a girl to do. Spend it!...lol (I haven't spent it yet. Waiting for BF deals)
I bought 2 more pairs of shoes (please don't judge...lol) There's a very good reason why I'm replacing some of my shoes. I sold quite a bit of my shoes last year. Over summer, I listed more shoes for sale and donated a huge pile. What I failed to mention in my last post, is that I sold 4 pairs recently that netted me a whopping $231.13. That covers the cost of my 4 new pairs of shoes. Plus I earned a $10 reward for spending over $60 on my latest shoes. So here's my latest shoes. I got it in both black and nude. Two colors you should always have in your closet. This is my preferred shoe brand. I wear 4" heels and the Calvin Klein ones are always comfortable enough to wear all day. I've been wearing this brand for years.
I also bought new furniture. Now I know what you all are thinking. How can I buy furniture if I don't have a house yet? I'm not buying big ticket items yet. I've been looking at new furniture and bookmarking things for when I get a house. I even have coupons for some of those stores. I'm a planner. I don't want to wait until the last minute and then have to scramble to find things and pay ridiculous prices. By shopping around now, I can look for the best prices and/or discounts. I like to have my life simplified. I've been looking for nightstands for months. So when I saw these, I knew I had to buy them. I love the simplicity of it. It's simple, but the the handles give it a more modern look. This is totally my style. Simple, but still makes a statement. Some of you might think it's pricey, but my dad taught us that "The cheap sometimes turns out expensive". So I'd rather spend more money on quality items that will last a long time. This was my first time shopping at Wayfair. Has anyone shopped with them before? Did you have a good experience?
So DS is getting these, because it matches his furniture. If I find that I like it, then I will order another set for myself. I already have my headboard and vanity picked out, but I have to wait until I move. You already know what color my decor is gonna be, right?...lol Blue of course 😊 What compliments blue better than white furniture.
I've been running errands all day. This is how my week is going. Errands every single day. I'll be glad when I can just take a day to stay home and get things done. Went to the DMV and they had to schedule an appointment for later in the day. Not good, because I needed to be home in time for DS. Then I told the Ex that there's another DMV not far from home that we can try. So we did and the place was jam packed. We would've waited more than an hour. So I said I'll just schedule an appointment online. Now I've got to squeeze the DMV into my already packed schedule. Oy vey.
Well, the day wasn't a total bust. I mean it started off great, so I'm not letting the DMV or anything else get me down. I'm just gonna give thanks for all my blessings.
Praying for favor and blessings for everyone else too. Enjoy the rest of the week peeps.
