What can you do with $1.48 plus tax?
You can make pillow covers. I found these dishtowels on clearance-clearance at Target and thought, "Hey, these could go on the futon in the Gym/Charming's room/Guest room. Said room is an off color because we painted it using "oops" paint from Home Depot. You don't know what "oops" paint is? "Oops" paint is paint they mixed but someone didn't want for some reason. They sell it for $5/gallon. Since we were trying to warm up the room, the paint was perfect.
Anyway, back to the dishtowels. These dish towels were marked down for $1.48 for two and I bought two sets, so I can make four pillows for the room. I had little red pillows that are perfect for covering, I even had that cute white button, and, viola, two new pillows for $1.48 plus tax. When all four are done, I'll have dressed them up for $2.96 plus tax. I think that is pretty darned good. What do you think?
