Good news for us today--I found a hundred bucks in the lost room! Two gift certificates (one for Best Buy and one for Linens 'n' Things) were just floating around. Luckily, they don't expire, because I suspect they were Fiance's Christmas presents from 2004--or earlier.
I did a bit more organizing and shuffling around of under-utilized furniture, and hopefully the only furniture we need (a linen cupboard of some description--our bath towels are stacked on a chair, and the extra sets of sheets are on the shelves next to the TV, which makes for a very odd-looking home entertainment center) will be available at Linens 'n' Things--which we now have for $50 cheaper! Good deal, says I.
