All I Wanna Do...

Is get back in bed and sleep! I don't know why, but for the past couple of days I have had a fairly nasty sore throat. When I woke up this morning it was even worse. And now I have the headache and congestion to go along with it. So anyway, I planned to spend the day cleaning my room, but I don't know how much I'll end up getting done. I have cleaned it a little bit, for those of you who are keeping up on my room-cleaning progress. Yes folks, I bought a small oval-shaped storage ottoman. It was like $24 or something, but it was on clearance at Wal-Mart and before any of you send me a comment saying I cannot afford anything that is $24, let me explain the logic governing my choice to purchase.

Okay, so my room is generally a complete mess. It is awful. It is partially because I have a small bedroom, but mainly because I just keep too much crap. That's all there is to it. So yesterday I got to thinking, "hey, maybe I just need some sort of chest to keep by my bed for all the graduation stuff and stuff from various showers I've been to" I mean, after all, it would make more sense than wasting one of my dresser drawers for that stuff, right?

So I went to Lisa's last night and stopped by Wal-Mart. Ah yes, Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart sucks, for those of you who were still unaware. However, being that I am a very poor woman, I am as of right now, enslaved to Wal-Mart and their seemingly low prices.

I also decided that I needed a fourth file crate to hold some of my excess books and pads of paper.

I spent the majority of my time looking for a freaking file crate because I honestly didn't figure Wal-Mart would have a chest I would like. Only to find that Wal-Mart was sold out of file crates. Anyway, somewhere in my quest for file crates, I found a cloth basket sort of thing. In fact, it was a set of two for $10. I thought that sounded pretty reasonable and picked it up. Well, then I later encountered a ZIPPERED basket that was a little bigger, but you only got one, also for $10. Well I thought that might actually be better than the two little cloth baskets for $10, so I picked it up too. Of course, I then found the infamous ottoman. I knew I couldn't really afford it, but dang it, I could use that ottoman for 3 different things. I decided to put the other stuff back. I could use the ottoman for storage, I could sit on it, or I could use it as a footrest. SO... at $24, I was sort of getting 3 things, which actually makes it $8 apiece.

Like my line of thinking?

You're a resourceful one, you! :P
