This afternoon I took a quick break and followed up on a Craigslist lead. It was one of those moments where you go right then
or else you'll lose out and so…I went. Upon my return 300 square feet of yellow carpet tiles came home with me for a seriously discounted price. My dogs were less than impressed, so I started the emails, IM's and text messages!
Although everyone I sent a message to was at work, I did get a few replies back from those willing to share in my excitement. When you score a great find — whether it's carpet tiles, something awesome from a antique or thrift store, an auction of even a garage sale — the secret has to be shared with someone.
Even though keeping all of our secrets to ourselves might make people think we spend far more money than we really did, it feels as though we're falling into an age where finding quality pieces at discounted prices is an art and a sport
. The more look for the least amount of money the better!
So who's the first person you contact? A parent? Best friend? Do you blog about it? Tweet? Or would you rather keep it to yourself and let people make their own conclusions? Let us know below!
