It’s a Waiting Game

Good Morning!

I’m stuck at home today waiting on the delivery folks at West Elm to deliver my new bed!!! I’m so excited that I can hardly sit still, excited about the bed, not the waiting part. I haven’t had a proper bed frame (Headboard/Footboard) in 5 years and I can’t wait to feel like a grown up again. An added plus is that delivery also included in home setup so they’ll bring it up to the 3rd floor and set it up for me, and take away the trash!

Is it weird that I’m really excited that they will take the trash away? I’m still trying to break down the boxes from the BBQ we set up earlier this week so I don’t feel like breaking down anything else!

I’ve actually been waiting for about 2 weeks for delivery, but the fact that I got the bed so cheap makes it all worth it. The bed (does not include the linens or mattress in the picture above) retails for $699. However, after stalking the West Elm website for months, I found it on clearance for $349! After using coupon code TAKE15 I received an additional 15% off, making it $296. In home delivery adds an extra $50 on top of the traditional shipping, but the 15% saved me the cost of the additional shipping.

But wait…it gets better!

About a month ago, I redeemed all my MyPoints credits for a $100 West Elm Gift Card; of course, I also earned additional MyPoints by making the purchase online. If you’ve ever wondered if MyPoints is legit, I can tell you that it is. While you earn points by making online purchases, you don’t need to buy anything to earn points. 

Overall I paid $300 for the bed, after shipping/taxes, etc. Pretty damn good deal if you ask me!


I’ll be back later with pics of the new bed frame, and some details on the new paint in the Master Bedroom.

  2. Hello, I noticed that you are a member at the mypoints site, I have been a member of mypoints since 12/31/2008.
    Have you tried swagbucks? You can earn digital dollars and redeem them to purchase any of several gift cards, and/or products. I earn most of my swagbucks by searching the web, watching partial short videos on SBTV (swag bucks tv), playing games, getting swag codes, doing the daily polls, and a couple other things. There are several ways to earn those digital dollars. I always open up five or six tabs on my browser in order to earn swagbucks by multi-tasking, which speeds up the time it takes to earn points. I have been earning swagbucks for the past five years. You can be my referral if you want. Here is the referral link:
