A big thank you to Manuela, who encouraged me to visit our local Garden Ridge store after I commented on a clock she purchased there. Garden Ridge is new to our area, and just opened up in the space of a closed Target store. I actually thought it was a farm supply store at first! I was blown away my first visit. So much for the eye to see and the store seemed to go on forever! Dave and I took particular interest in their Christmas tree selection. You know how we feel about Christmas trees around here! When the Christmas items went to 75% off, Dave surprised me with a 7ft pink Christmas tree - so adorable! And then, the wait was on. Would they go to 90% off?
My sweet husband diligently checked in every day after work. For the past two weeks, they stayed at 75% off. Finally, yesterday 90% OFF! Dave picked up a few Christmas trees after work before coming home.
Including this 12 foot pre-lit tree! Yes, 12 feet of Christmas tree awesomeness!
We went back to the store together to get discounted ornaments (most boxes were .99 or less) and one more Christmas tree. My cart was filled to the brim with ornaments. I looked like I was auditioning for TLC's Extreme Couponing! Don't worry local folks, we didn't clear the shelves :) We filled the back of our minivan. Hey, when my husband says spend what you want, I listen! This morning, I totaled our haul and figured we came away with just over 1500 ornaments!
Who's ready for Christmas! This girl is!
