This has been our spot lately! The weather has been awesome, I can officially say that this week so far has been "hot"....otherwise it's been perfect! So the laundry has gotten behind as it piles up faster in the summer months and my house is slacking a little. But after the winter we had, I have to get my outdoor fix! Since today is a bit hot, I thought I would share with you some of my steals and deals on our little deck. Seems like everyone is on a budget these days and looking for a bargain or freebie Bargain shopping can be kind of a mind twister compared to just going and buying exactly what you want. Questions go through my head like this: do I buy this because it's such a good deal even though I don't really need it?, how much more money will I put into it?, or how much time and energy will I put into it making it my own?, is it worth it?, how much is it brand new?.
Then sometimes you come across a deal that you can't resist.....
I found this patio set in the middle of winter at the Salvation Army, I was shocked when the guy told me $20 for the set! It didn't have cushions but I knew the set would fit perfectly on my little deck. I thought about making the cushions but when I compared the price of buying verses making, I came to the conclusion that foam is expensive all around, and there wasn't a big enough difference to make them. So I skipped the DIY and bought the cushions for $200 at Target. Probably spent $10 bucks a chair for Target to make them...it was worth it!
