  • Go to Target.com

    we just bought some nice ones there for less than $100 each, but not 8x8 though. But they'll be reasonable.

    the hair on his arms would cover at least a 2' x 4' area.

    Rugs are insanely expensive. We found a nice 5'x8' one at Ikea a few years ago, and for only $60. Have you looked there?

    I'm currently looking for one in that size range for my toddler's bedroom, and it's pissing me off. :D I don't want to spend $100 or more for a vanity purchase that she will surely destroy at some point in the next few years. ;)

    I have heard you can get one to 'tie the whole room together'

    All you need to do is make sure it matches the drapes.
