I spent the earlier part of the afternoon shopping for stuff at Ikea.
All planned purchases.
I had so desperately wanted to get a bigger and better shelving unit.
Thanks to the insane amount of books that i have PLUS all the notes that i accumulated over the last 5 months of 2008.
Thankfully and quite serendipitously, there was a sale that just commenced this week.
I had already planned to set aside $150-$200 on the shelving unit.
But with good fortune on my side, i managed to score a beautiful shelving unit at the marvellous price of SGD$29!!!!
Thanks to that, i even managed to score some OTHER items like hangers ($1 for a set of 5!)
*and bought 2 sets of those*
and a clock that cost me actually SGD$10 MORE than the shelving unit haha.
Plus! some magazine folders for SGD$5.
It's such a fabulous sale.
I wish i could have brought home another shelving unit though.
It was just too big to get into the car.
Oh well, i saved approximately $70 for NOT getting the other one.
So i only spent a grand total of SGD$69!!!!
I just could not believe my luck.
I'm soo pleased with my purchases.
Now that's what S*uze O*rman calls a savvy shopper.
p/s: thanks azimah and almie!
