I'm afraid to say that after hearing about someone on Craiglist who was trying to sell an "automan" (ottoman ~wink~), the word has become a part of my vocabulary. And I have been looking for an automan for Kati's room for years. Whenever I'd come across one, either the color was not right or the price was not right...or both.
Then The Nester did a post about cubes. That she purchased at Walmart. For $15.00. White. Okay!

By the time I got to my Walmart, they were $10.00! Okay!
Kati was happy with her automan. She'd finally have a place to prop up her feet as she read. Or a place to plop down a craft project. Or an extra seat in a pinch.
Then I drug it into Bekah's room and tried it out there. Yep, it looked great there too.
Back to Walmart to get an automan for Bekah. (For 10 bucks, why didn't I think of that in the first place?)
Even Pinky has been enjoying the automans (automen?).
Talk about bang for the buck!
What's the last low investment purchase you made that gave you a thrill?
