OMG! I really do hate buying sheets! It's been one disappointment after another.
I finally decided what I was going to do to replace my torn sheet. Instead of spending $80 on Amazon for one set, I was going back to Target to buy a fitted sheet in same (or close to it) brown color as my still perfectly good top sheet from the set with the now torn fitted sheet. AND I was going to buy another set (in same color) like I have. That way I'd have 2 sets of sheets to rotate and hopefully last several years.
So, after I get done working (an at home day) I head on over to Target. But no, they don't have my brown color in stock. Just a "birch" kind of brown color. A fitted sheet in that color really didn't match my brown top sheet at all. I had already looked online (which was what gave me the idea to buy just the fitted sheet) and saw "my" brown color. I went back home and got the fitted sheet and the sheet set in my cart and it came to $79.33. I had a $10 off $50 bedding and bath coupon and a pharmacy rewards 5% off coupon, as well as my $100 gift card. But wait! There was also a $25 off $100 bedding and bath coupon. I can do the math: If I spend another $20.66 on something I can get $25 off! So basically whatever I add to my cart is free, plus a few more dollars off my total. That's a no brainer.
I've been wanting a new throw blanket in cream color for the sofa. Of course I wanted to keep it in this $20 range and of course the one I found I liked best and for a few pennies over what I needed to spend was out of stock. I either didn't like any of the other blankets or they were now in the $30 range or they were $19.99, which wasn't enough to get me to $100.
So, I spent another hour on the computer trying to figure out what to buy. I finally picked out a tissue box holder for the bathroom and another bath towel. Now my total was $100.25. Put in the $25 off code, my 5% off code (and for some reason it was giving me the 5% red card discount even though I had put in a gift card code) and got it down to $67.92. Hit submit and then it popped up that the fitted sheet item was removed and could not be shipped at this time. OMG! Now it was showing out of stock. I can't just pick a different color, because then I'd have a top and fitted sheet that don't match at all. I backed out and haven't ordered anything now.
To make matters worse I got out the old old sheet set and washed it so I could pull off the ripped sheet set and use it until the new set(s) came. But NOOOOOO....it's so old style that my mattress is too tall for it and it won't fit on the mattress. I had to remake the bed with the torn sheet on it because that is all we have to use right now!
I GIVE UP! Tomorrow I'm just going to go buy one set in whatever color and be done with it.
