I LOVE the Salvation Army!!!

So I absolutely LOVE Targets Fieldcrest rugs they are well built and BEAU-tiful. But our budget right know doesn't allow for $189.99 rug to $349.99 rug. I don't know if it's the budget or if I am to much like my mother and think it's RIDICULOUS amount of money for a rug!!!!! Which it isn't but I just can't make myself spend that much. So Every time I go to Target I have to take stroll down the rug aisle and OOOGGLe, AUGHH over them and think maybe when you go on SALE ONE day ONE day I will have you in my living room.
Well TODAY is that day. So on my weekly visit to the Salvation Army. Well before I get to the story, for all of you who didn't know this the Ogden Salvation Army gets all the things that don't sell at Target or items that are returned with no label and many more things. So all lot of clothes, toys, picture frames, pillows, sheet sets, and many more are all in original form. So back to my story I walk into Salvation Army and say Hello to Mickey and Tiff. Go to the furniture section browse around, find a cool globe of the world on a wood stand. Pick that up and stumble to the Target table and find a huge glass container $2.00 SCORE, and a cute Sunday dress in my SIZE-Yeah for $3.00 original tags still on it. Then I see the best deal of the day-My Fieldcrest rug! I think I may a sqweeled a little, okay a lot. It's all wrapped up in plastic and the price is written on it $50.00!!!!! Can you believe it $50.00 for a 5 feet X 7 feet rug.I was SCREAMING and JUMPING UP & DOWN, and so EXCITED::)))!!! Okay I was doing this in my head. I GRABBED the rug so fast. Buy all the items, get them in the car, and immediately called my mom. Told her my good news and then called my husband. I don't even know why I call him because his exact words were, "Why we already have a rug that works just fine!" me, WHAT EVER DUMB BUTT!!!. He's a boy he doesn't get it.

So here she is, in her new home. I love the colors it matches wonderfully. Now could the Salvation Army get the 8 foot X 10 Foot and I will be set. It may happen if I wait long enough!! My husband just informed me right this minute that when I type up my little narations that I use the KNOW, NOW all wrong. I told him I never said I was good in ENGLISH class!!!!
