After getting a couple of emails from people asking about where I got specific things in our family room, I thought I would just do a post on it. I meant to do that before, but forgot, so here we go! As a general rule, most things I have, I collected over time and on clearance or used, so you won't just be able to run out and purchase it. But, it can give you an idea of things you can find if you keep your eyes peeled.

So, as you can see now, my number 3 shopping locales are: Target, Ikea, and the Ronald McDonald House Annual Sale. I always walk out of there with a TRUCK full of stuff for cheap. I write a list that I keep for the year of things I want to keep my eyes out for. It stinks that it is just once a year (October), since that is really the only place I get "thrifted" items from since I really don't have time to check out thrift stores. Occasionally I will go to one of my favorite antique stores for smalls, but not often. The good thing is, the RMHouse sale is THE BEST SALE ever. You can find anything and everything there for garage sale prices. Plus it all goes to charity! Win win people. Win win.
