Good morning dear bargain hunters! I am so sorry I have been away for a bit – the real estate class kind of kicked my butt! Not so much that it was hard, but that it was so condensed – a 2 week full time class that covered a ton of material with a test to boot. There was so much information to cram in my brain – and my memory is not what it used to be! In the end it was worth it however; I passed the class test and now I am eligible to sit for the national and state exams. I hope to do that before the end of January. So far I’ve gotten quite a bit accomplished in 2013!
I watched the first part of the Lance Armstrong interview last night. I wonder if I was the only one who found it/him chilling. It seems to me that he is at least a sociopath, and considering his level of “bullying”, quite possible a psychopath. At times during the interview if I were Oprah, I would have been scared. He is one scary man. That said, Lance did that interview for one reason and one reason only; the same reason he lied and bullied for so many years: himself. He’s not making his apologies to people whose lives he destroyed or fessing up because it is the right thing to do. He’s doing it because he is trying to save his own ass and because he is still trying to “win at all costs”. He wants to win. Period. I never liked Lance and I never found him inspiring, so perhaps these are easy things for me to say. I feel great empathy for those people who love him, trusted him, and for everyone who ever wore a Livestrong bracelet. You are all victims.
Well now. On to the bargains this morning! Napastyle, one of my very favorite places to shop online, is having their Annual Home Sale. Several years ago, I splurged on this Fair & Square Game Table & Benches. It continues to be my most favorite piece of furniture in the house. Anything I have ordered from NapaStyle I have loved, so as you can imagine I get quite excited at the thought of this sale! If you have been shopping for light fixtures lately you know how expensive they are, especially the gorgeous ones like this Old Tavern Pendant Light. Only $139.99 today!
Ditto for decent switch plates. If you can even find unique ones, they are expensive. I can tell you, that if you are trying to sell your house, invest in putting in some new switch plates, like these Estancia Leather Switch Plates. It is a great return on your investment, because people really do notice. Plus, it gives the impression that the current owners didn’t skimp on anything else in the house. These are a great buy at $12.99 and $19.99 depending on size.
Enjoy the sale bargain hunters!
