It's on SALE

I love love love a bargain  - there is something exhilarating about finding a bargain -  even if you don't need the item there is still a buzz when you had over the cash!!!

So my latest bargain is very exciting -as you know we are building a house  - yes plans all approved and we should see some work start in the next week -the pool goes in then the house goes up - the budget for all this is tight!  So the boys and I are out and about when I saw the sign that draws us all in - SALE!!  Swinging across two lanes of traffic we head to Freedom  - but this was not any old sale  - this was an end of lease SALE SALE.

Everything was heavily discounted - and I have to say thatI was like a kid in a lolly shop - the loot I bought at full price was around $1900, at the Freedom normal sale is would have cost me $1300 but a the end of lease  sale it all costs $125!!!!  Yep you read it right - $125 - now despite the fact that my love and I had not even talked about light fittings for the house I figured that it he hated my choices we could always sell on eBay and make our money back - but this was a buy now or regret moment!!

Bale Pendant  - $199  - sale $10!!! - main bedroom 

again a $10 bargain for the kids rooms

Industrial Pendant $349 Sale  $25 - bought two for above the kitchen table

Orbit Pendant $399 Sale $25 - hanging about the kitchen island bench!!

I am pleased to say that my one true love likes the lights - he was not as sold on the yellow bale pendant for our room but I think that a little subtle colour is good!! 

So now we have the problem of storing all this loot of the next 7-8 months!! 

Yes it is a gnome - he has pride of place on the hall table!!
Oh and we also collected a new household member - Mr Joe - at half price he was a bargain and Mr Little was so so excited to bring him home!
