Ginormous hole in woven blanket got too big to ignore (my toes, dogs' paws getting stuck, etc.) Blankets on sale at Target nearby, went there, DIDN'T like the color, paid full price for SAME blanket, different color. Can you even see the freaking blanket under the quilt? No, but I would KNOW it was that weird pinky red instead of that nice blue. Oh yeah, that was worth an extra $18.
On serious note, what's the Mustachian balance for a nice living and working enviro that doesn't bum you out everytime you look at it (oh, hey, look, my cheapo college bookshelf seems to be collapsing after 35 years!) and over-the-top matching throw pillow fetishes?
