Talk me out of buying

2 blankets for the bed with my tax refund. I get a whopping 400 back and the blankets are 100 bucks a piece with shipping but they are queen sized and soft and warm. I want to get one in brown and my SO says we should get white so I wanted to buy 2, one in each color.

Talk me out of buying both even though they are soooooo soft and warm.

I would say just buy one. Get beige to compromise.

 DO IT!!! I never regretted buying a comfotable blanket.

What are the washing/care instructions? As long as its not dry clean only, you're good!

They don't have brown, it's on clearance so the only colors are brown black and white.

He says because we have cats the white is the better color it won't show hair as much.

I say white is never a good idea and the cats are all brown and black so it would show horribly on the white.

Youre getting this extra money and going to spend it on BLANKETS?!


Do you have any debt you can take care of first? Car repairs? Bills to catch up on? Credit cards to pay off? Medical bills? Getting the kids better fitting shoes/clothes?

Im sure you can think of something that should have more priority over blankets.

No, not dry clean. Lol that's the first thing I checked! It's gentle cycle and fluff dry, so a bit of a pain but nothing too horrible.

No not really, every bill is caught up no one needs anything. It's truly 100% play money for me. I plan on using 200 for a new iPhone and the other 200 on whatever else I want.

A website :D

It's a clearance site and I don't have it on my phone, it's on the big computer and I don't remember the site.

Just get the brown. Can you imagine how dingy the white one will look after a while?
