hello!! i love getting a good deal-who doesnt?? im a big thrift store person-for a week in january, i went to the thrift store 3 times-and got a bunch of clothes for my kids, some for me and a purse. i think all told-i spent $50. anyway, we just used our tax refund and bought a new bed. its a king size and its HUGE. i love it. but we needed sheets. i was going to look at walmart or kmart-until my sister in law suggested big lots. for those of you not familiar with big lots-its a close out store. i wasnt sure if we would find decent sheets or if they would still be expensive cuz they ARE king size. but we looked. we got 3 sets for us...one of which is satin...plus 1 for each of my kids...plus a 8 pack of paper towel. with sales tax, we spent $107. that was GREAT. especially after i got the sheets home and pulled out my oldest dds-and noticed that they were tommy hilfieger. and manufacturer retail price was $47!!!! big lots price was $18. and my youngest dds is paul frank-he does all those monkey things...theres was no manufacturer price on those though-but b.l. price was $17. did they NEED sheets-not really but for that price...i am still thrilled all what we spent and what we got...
