Because I Love a Good Deal

Jan 6, 2013

I have come across some great deals lately and naturally I'm going to share them with you!

If you've priced sunburst mirrors they are at least $100 for a decent sized one. If you follow me on facebook you probably remember this Martha Stewart mirror from Home Depot I posted about. Don't be fooled by the $34.99 price tag, it's a good size at 30" x 30".

Allen + Roth Black Faux Fur Pillow Cover, $7.95 (at Lowe's)

 Black Square Accent Pillow Cover
Can you believe both of these came from home improvement stores? I may or may not have bought both of these for my master bedroom redo. ;)

My favorite deals are when I find something identical to something I'm considering buying at a much cheaper price. Check out these look-alikes.

West Elm Pin Tuck King Duvet and Two Pillow Shams, $187.00

Room View: White

Bargain:  Target Threshold King Duvet Set with Two King Shams, $79.99

Threshold™ Pinched Pleat Duvet Cover Set

What's the difference?  Target's duvet set is 215 TC and West Elm's set is 230 TC.

West Elm Navy and White Striped Queen Duvet with Two Shams, $99.00

Room View

Bargain:  Target Navy Striped Queen Duvet and Two Shams, $29.99

Room Essentials Striped Duvet Cover Set
What's the difference? Target's duvet set is 180 TC compared to West Elm's set that's 200 TC.

I'm trying to talk one of my kids into this duvet, but it's not going well. They have very definite ideas about their style. I'm trying to be accomodating, but I just don't know how to paint camouflage walls or decorate Xbox-style (nor do I want to try). I even showed one of my son's this picture and said,"Doesn't he look like a very happy boy in this room?"

It didn't work.

We have so many projects going on right now. On the bright side, we got so much done in our master bedroom this weekend. I can't believe how fast it's going! But, our new floors that were being installed upstairs last week came to a crashing halt. It's a long story, but there are some issues with the floor that I hope will be sorted out this week. Fingers crossed!


  1. Hi,

    I have a quick question about your blog, do you think you could e-mail me?


  2. I sure hope you can talk him into that blue and white duvet - I've always loved that one, too. But I WOULD like to see you make an xbox room...just saying!

    1. There's a good chance we're going to have an xbox bedroom or media room one day soon. The kids are wearing me down!
