Oh, what fun... ("shopping")

March 6th, 2012 at 08:15 am

I've been saving up my $15 Amazon gift certificates which I earn each month from an online forum I participate in with a major credit card company.

With the $10 GC i got today, I had $40 saved up. There was something I'd seen elsewhere, at Home Decorators and Ballard's Design, that I really liked. Just on a hunch, i typed it in the search bar at Amazon, and they had the same product, supplied by Home Decorators, which was the lower of the two prices I'd seen.

So I ordered a nickel hanging pendant light converter kit. It's meant for use in a recessed lighting fixture. I have one, located above the kitchen sink and window. I thought a hanging fixture there would look nice. The length is totally adjustable. You don't need any tools, you simply screw it into the existing fixture light like a light bulb and voila, you have a hanging pendant light with a base that goes over the recessed opening.

Nice, huh?

In other news, I'm pleased to see that what I'd estimated to be my net biweekly paycheck from the p/t job was off. I'm actually netting over $40 more every 2 weeks, and I figure this is due to the payroll tax break Congress decided to extend through the year. So hurray for me.

I also slightly goofed in estimating when my unemployment benefits would finally peter out. I originally figured it would be end of April, but I miscalculated and it should be more like end of May, due to the p/t job. Hurray for me again.

    I saw those kinds of lights in a catalog today. I thought they were pretty cool too.
