Today was such a good day for me! I've been looking for a bunk bed set for the boys that has a twin bed on top and a full on the bottom. I've been haunting Craigslist several times a day, just waiting and watching. The best price that I've seen has been around $100 and so that's what I was prepared to pay.
Well, I found an ad for a yard sale that mentioned a bunk bed. I figured, what the heck, I'll send an email and see if she will sell it early. After all, all she could say was no, right? She didn't. When I opened my email and found out the price I was practically tripping all over myself to get there and put cash in her hand even though I didn't have a truck to move it at the time. You know what she was asking for it? $25 bucks! Woohoo! What a steal.
My folks drove two hours to bring a trailer to load everything up for me (and put it together too.) My parents are the best!!!
The bed is styled like this one but the color is all red:
Now, to make things even better, let me tell you what happened yesterday. We (my Mom and I) went thrift store shopping with the kids. The Youngest saw a comforter set and began absolutely begging for it. I've never in my life heard a child beg for linens. It was the funniest sight. It looked brand new and had super heroes on it. The Youngest is obsessed with super heroes, but especially these: Batman & Robin and it had all the bad guys too. The bad guys were particularly important since he prefers those to Batman & Robin. He's very strange that way. So I bought them, knowing that in the not too far future we would be getting a bunk bed.
And now today, I have one. For $25 bucks. How cool is that?
