During "Appendectomy 2011", while on one of my many Target scrip runs, I found green curtain panels that I thought would be perfect for our office. They were $24.99 each.
The only problem was that there was only one curtain panel at our Target and I needed 2. I bought the one and thought I would snag a matching one on another Target trip. But then every time I went to Target and checked, they didn't have any of that same green striped curtain that we liked.
I finally decided to look for the curtain online....AND THEY WERE SOLD OUT!!! I immediately called my Target store and asked if they had any in stock. THEY DIDN'T! They gave me 2 stores near-by that had them. I called the one store and verified that they had one left, but was told that they could not hold it for me because it was now on clearance. Between a napping 17 month-old and a kindergartener to pick up, I couldn't get to Target right away.
When I finally got to Target around 7 PM that night...my curtain was still there! But now it was on clearance for $17! And...there were actually TWO of my curtain panels there! Since I'm crazy, I still had the receipt and packaging for the original curtain panel at home. So, I bought the 2 curtains on clearance for $34 and returned the original $24.99 curtain the next day.
I'm loving finally having some window treatments!
