The deal of a lifetime

Saturday I got the best deal I'm pretty sure will ever happen to me.
We love Lowes. We go there and wander around frequently. I always check the carpet remnants they have and about 2 weeks ago I found some nice carpet that was the right size for either Nick's or Halle's room. The carpet in the kids room is original to the house and needed to be replaced. Anyway- they had it for $75. I thought that was a good price so this weekend when Mark needed to borrow a trailer for something else- I said lets go look and see if it's still there.

Well it was and actually it was in the center clearance aisle- marked down to $50!
I was so excited. We went to check out and the scanner wouldn't work so they punched in the number and it came up to $7.50. They called the manager over and she punched in the number again and I jokingly said "that price works for me!"
The manager then informed me that actually if that is the price that is in the computer then that is what they have to sell it for.

I couldn't wipe the smile off my face! I couldn't hand over my $10 bill and get out of there fast enough before they changed their minds!
So I got brand new carpet for Seven dollars and Ninety Five Cents!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Halle ended up getting it because Nick didn't want to deal with cleaning his room to get the carpet installed (typical teenager!)
Mark installed it yet Saturday afternoon. We haven't put up the trim yet because I decided to paint.

What a great deal- Now I really love Lowes!!!

Will you shop for me too! I need carpet for Bekah and Jeremiah's rooms and that price works for me. Right now Bekah has old blue carpeting and Jeremiah has old pink carpeting. So old we don't want to switch them!!!

You know this reminds me of a time when Jasmine was about two years old and we went to Walmart and got her one of those kid recliners, usually over $80 dollars. We went to check out and they couldn't get the right price either, we paid $8.80 for the recliner LOL

Great bargain Cheri :)
