For a while I've wanted a piece of furniture so that I could hang up coats and store gloves, scarves and hats as they seem to pile up over the winter months. I found exactly what I wanted online.
Unfortunately it was much too expensive. Then the sales came - still too expensive. I kept coming back to it; wishing. A few days ago, I was looking wistfully at it yet again and decided to think outside my little box. Christmas is coming, say I presented the idea to the family accountant, Rob, as a joint Christmas present? So I went online again and saw that as well as the sale price, there was a reduction of a further 10% plus free postage (even on bulky items) if I used the special offer code!
So I prepared my case and my personal accountant agreed. I was very careful to point out that the reduction totalled to more than 100€. It solved the Christmas shopping problem too - the way to a man's heart!
Now I just have to assemble it ...
