Don't Forget about Menards!

While looking at the Menards sale flyer on Sunday, I noticed a few things that peaked my interest.  First, there was a battery sale, and we were in great need of a few AA's: Rayovac 20 packs were on sale for $6.99 with a $5 rebate (limit 2). 

Next, there was an 8 piece king sized comforter/sheet set on sale for $54.99 with a $40 rebate.  Now, I know that Menards isn't the first place that you think of when in need of a new comforter, but it's hard to find a set of king sized sheets for $14.99, let alone an entire king comforter/sheet set.  And I'm sure the quality isn't outstanding, but for a girl who likes to switch things up on a frequent basis, I'd consider a $14.99 comforter set.  It would also be great for someone looking to stage their home for sale!

Finally, there was a picker upper tool that was on sale for $3.99 with a $3 rebate.  I don't need a picker upper tool....I can't think of a thing I would use it for in a practical sense.  Honestly, it just looked like fun.  Bill started handing me tissues with it last night, and I teared up with laughter.  Hilarious stuff, but you probably had to be there.

A picture may help:
Imagine this coming at you from three feet away!!

Now here's a picture of all the goods: 
Sorry, it's a dark image.  The picker upper tool is resting on top of the bed set.

So it's a major stretch, but the above is the Sydney Palampore set from Pottery Barn, and it bares some resemblance in color scheme to my $15 set.  Even for a twin set with 2 shams, the total would be $140 at Pottery Barn (King size is sold out, so I don't have a price for it).
Cost Breakdown:
I got 2 packs of batteries, my picker upper stick, and a king comforter set.  I paid $78.16 and will receive $53 in rebates* if I keep the comforter set (I need to try it out on the new bed before I commit to it.  Afterall, $15 is $15, and I'm not big on throwing money away on an unused item.).  Grand total for the purchase is $25.16, including the tax.  Wow!

*The rebate is in the form of Menards Credit.  We frequent Menards on a regular basis, so we're good with this.
