A friend sent me a link to a column you recently published about bargain hunting, suggesting that it might solve some of my frustrations. At first I was a little hesitant; thinking an advice column written by a cat must be a joke, but I have to tell you I was pleasantly surprised!
For some time now, I have been searching for a comforter set for my elderly father’s bedroom (he lives with my husband and I). In order to keep him warm without roasting the rest of us, I wanted a thick comforter and, since his rugs are grey, I was adamant about the color: it simply had to be navy blue. After three months of looking, I was getting quite frustrated – everything I found in navy that was thick enough to keep Pop warm during a cold winter was quite pricey!!!
I decided to give the advice you gave a try, and I could not be more pleased with the results! I went to one of the websites you suggested, and searched for “men’s comforter sets”. I found a beautiful one in alternating shades of charcoal and pearl grey striping that actually looks better than the navy blue I originally had in mind! The best part was the price – 75% off of retail!
I was about to purchase the comforter set alone, when I noticed that if I spent another $10 I could get free shipping, so instead I bought the “bed in a bag” version of the set – that’s a comforter set that comes with matching sheets – for only $30 more. Because I saved $18 on shipping, it was like getting a set of $130 sheets for only $12. That’s more than 90% off! The best part is that the set is just as thick and plush and beautiful as it looked online; my father is thrilled with it; and I saved $200 that I can now put towards Christmas gifts for my children.
I am so happy that my friend sent me your column that I am treating her to lunch next week as a thank you! You, Tazi-Kat, have a new devoted reader. Keep up the good work!
