While I was making the new toy that I posted on Tuesday, DH got some help bringing in the new couch we bought. We really like the chaise lounges we bought a few years ago in front of the TV, it makes it difficult to have friends over to watch movies. We talked about getting a sectional on and off for years, but when my SIL asked me to help her find a chaise lounge that looked like ours (because she wanted another seat in her room and she liked ours so much) it seemed the time had come to get one.
Well of course now that we want one, there are none but the utmost expensive ones to be found. I do a lot of my shopping at the local retail salvage store (they get some really cool stuff in there you just have to go in often to be there when it comes in) and sadly they had nothing. We tried the resale shops, and again nothing. The local Big Lots store had three "sectionals" (They were just couches with one long side) for $700-$800. Well they also have a cool rewards program that if you make 10 purchases over $20 you get a 20% coupon for your next purchase. So, once I got my coupon, we bought it..
