buying furniture at the grocery store

January 6th, 2011 at 02:05 pm

I went to King Soopers this morning to pick up my prescription and get a few groceries. My prescription was $7.32 and I had another coupon for $25 in groceries when you transfer your prescription. It was a refill, but they always let me use them anyways because they know I will just take the coupon over to Safeway and use it there if they don't. So another $25 in free groceries. After buying about $16 in groceries today I still have a balance of over $50 on my card for more free groceries, plus I have 2 more coupons that my mom and sister saved for me.

While in the store I saw 2 really nice leather looking recliners. My recliner is over 4 years old and looking very bad, the faux leather is wearing off and there are actual slits in the seat. I have to buy new recliners about every 4 years, because that's all they last for me. I've bought expensive $800 real leather chairs to cheaper $400 chairs and none of them last more than 4 years. So since they all last the same amount of time the last couple of times I've bought the cheaper $300 - $400 chairs.

The ones I saw at the grocery store are $250 and they are exactly my style and color. Beautiful. So now I have to figure out how to get rid of my existing chair and how to get the new one to my house. I usually have them delivered when I buy from a furniture store and they take the old one away. I called a local trash place and if I drop my chair off it will only cost $12. That's a good deal. I'm going to ask my dad if he can help me get the chair in his truck. I hate to ask him to lift heavy things and I don't particularly like to either, but I really like this chair.

If I buy it, I will use my credit card getting 5% back or $12.50 and I will get 250 gas points saving me another $5.

I finished reading my book Mountain Courage by Jason Manning. Western - ok

    You could freecycle the old one.

    Thriftorama read my mind ... I was going to suggest the same thing. The chair may be of use to someone ... If you freecycle it, you could give the chair a second life, avoid the $12 fee, and save your back.
