I typically go to Meijer each week, whether I shop much or not — I like to pick next week’s ad up so that I can have more time to go through it and blog it for you. I mention this to lay this groundwork: Last week, Meijer’s seasonal, lawn & garden, and outdoor decor aisles were well-stocked with some items on sale 30% off.
Today, one week later, those aisles have been completely redone with back-to-school items. Outdoor decor has been relegated to a clearance aisle and endcap, and prices are good — up to 75% off! I wish I had taken a photo last week to show the dramatic difference, but you’ll just have to take my word for it.
Anyway, I had been looking for some outdoor pillows to go with an outdoor couch we purchased this summer, but I figured I would find better deals on that at the end of summer. (I was thinking I’d start looking in August or September..!) Well, summer’s apparently over, as far as Meijer’s concerned.
I scored these outdoor pillows for just $5 each, which is 75% off their original $20 price. The cushions on our outdoor couch are teal green, so not only were they a bargain… they’ll actually match our furniture too.
