Love at first sight

I have been shopping around for a vacuum for quite a while now. Everywhere I go I scope the vacuum isle, and every Sunday I look through the ads for a deal. Yesterday I went to Costco with my mom and I was severely drooling over the Dyson Slim that was there. However, spending $400+ on a vacuum throws me back into reality REAL fast.
We had a few more errands to run and I needed to deposit Leif's check so we drove over to Fred Meyer. I of course had to do a drive by of the vacuum isle. AND OH MY! There waiting for me was my dream vacuum (the very same one at costco) That once upon a time was $499, had been marked down to $469 and THEN WAS AN EXTRA 50% OFF!! I walked out of Fred Meyer with a $499 product for $234. I must say I am pretty darn proud of myself and my ability for ONCE in my life to have patience and shop around.


  1. See, I need more patience. I am not a fan of shopping so I don't get a good deal very often. But I have a dyson and I love it.

  2. That is a SWEET deal! I think Tim paid the $400 price for our Dyson last year. They are the best ever and make you feel like cleaning everything! Enjoy it!
