So, do you remember my crush on that Ikea lamp that was sold out?

Walmart Hometrends Nova Lamp Base

Yeah, me neither. This baby totally had me at HELLO $25!!

While it's not really $15 like it's being advertised on Walmart's Hometrends main page, when paired with a shade I found on clearance at Target for $7, the grand total for this lamp comes in at $32... $8 less than the Ikea one! And that's not even counting the fact that I didn't have to drive out of the state to get it. shipped it to my local store with their "site-to-store" shipping for free. The only drawback was that I had to go into Walmart to get it*, but now that it's home and looking fabulous in my bedroom I'd say it was worth the headache.

*A word about Walmart: I had been boycotting the company for years simply because it is not a pleasure to shop there and why spend money in a place that I hate to go? In 2010, I decided to give the company another shot at winning my business. I have since made two big purchases and the verdict so far? Yup, still hate going there. I may just pay the extra money next time to get it shipped directly to me and forego the headache of interacting with the Wal-People.
