On a side note, I don't really think any of the houses with pictures posted look bad at all. I've seen waaayyyy worse houses with-out- kids in them.
I was thinking the bolded too! None of these homes pictured are bad *at all*. I've seen worse!

It is identical to my Mom's. She may have bought it at PB, but I thought maybe WM, but who knows.

Thanks to everyone else for sharing. :-) Sorry I chickened out.
Would you show me?? We are in a tiny condo and I always need inspiration!

You bought the set of three for $10?!?!? How?!?!?! I got ours as a wedding gift but it retailed for $150 here, you've got to tell me how you get these deals
They were clearances out at jcp last year. I saw the original sticker and nabbed it. When I showed my oldest sister, she nabbed the last set available. We were ecstatic about it. Lol

What a great thread.

I have to ask- do some of you seriously put your coffe makers/rosters/etc away every day?? I do not like clutter on my kitchen counters, but I don't consider these things clutter..
