I spent a somewhat frustrating afternoon trying to find just the right kind of chest-of-drawers for all the miscellaneous junk that's still in piles on my bedroom floor. What I want is unfortunately rather specific: a long, low chest with a lot of small (but not too small) drawers. My parents have had one of these for years. The closest I could find was a store that would have one custom made for me for $600 ... but only if I ordered it before Monday; they were having a 50% off sale on custom furniture. I'm pretty sure I could build this thing myself for about $100, so I'm not wanting to spend six times that much for someone else to do it for me.

But I managed to get in a trip to Peet's and stock up on loose tea, so the afternoon was not a total waste.
