Stool softener

July 2, 2007

Journal, Lauren

It’s not what you think.

With so many computers around here on the countertop, our old hardwood stools just weren’t cutting the comfort mustard.  Since this is where we’re spending 90% of our waking time, this had to be changed.

Did you know that if you buy something at Slumberland Furniture they send you a $25 gift card on your birthday?  We play this game well.  The first time I got a card we got two lamps for $7 each and walked out of the store with ten bucks still on the card!  This time we bought a $36 stool that turned out to be 20% off, so after my new $25 gift card, I paid a whopping $4.07!!!  Rock on, bargain shopper!  For the other stool, we just bought a little stool topper, the ‘stool softener’ aforementioned.  (C’mon, it’s funny.)

This is how we brought the Slumberland stool home.  All the way from Lincoln.

The shipping charges were frightful!

    I want to know why I traveled all the way from Salt Lake to get my picture taken by Lauren and it’s still not on this page. Was it that bad of a picture?
    Also “Stool Softener”. . . fantastic!

    From the size of the tag — it must be pretty good stuff! Or is it stuffing?

      They really push the sales at Slumberland. They want to be sure you can read the tags, so they’re GIANT!!
