Planning ahead: buying cabinet hardware for the kitchen of my dreams
It's been fairly well established on this blog that Rob and I are house people.
And if you read my blog with any regularity, you know I love a bargain.
Those two things collided recently, when my favorite home improvement store had a sale on cabinet pulls for 50 cents after rebates. And not just any cabinet pulls – this sale included the fancy cup pulls that look straight out of an amazing, vintage kitchen.
I love cup pulls. I Someday, I hope to have a kitchen that features them.
So I did what any self-respecting, bargain-loving house person would – I went and bought some. They're normally priced at more than $7. They're on sale for $2.50 and I'll get $2 back in a store rebate for each one I bought. That's more than 93 percent off. See? Bargain.
And while I don't have a use for them yet, I hope to someday. Or, if that doesn't pan out, I know I can always find someone who does.
So, for now, we're hanging on to them in our basement. (Obviously, this purchase was a conscious decision because our space is so limited.)
The whole thing just has me wondering – is this abnormal behavior, to buy cabinet hardware you never expect to use in your current home? Have you stockpiled anything similar?
