Buy This, Not That
Spring is here and the winter blues are gone! Well, almost. Changing the look of your home is one of the best ways to ring in a new season. Unfortunately, redecorating a home can get pricey, resulting in the purchase of only one or two nice pieces. Well, have no fear. There are plenty of local places that sell cheaper versions of your favorite pieces: pillows, wall décor and candles.
This beautifully designed pillow will add the perfect spring touch to any home. However, you’re going to want more than just one. While we love this pillow from Anthropologie, it costs a whopping $58. Accomplish the same spring look with this pillow from Target for just $24.99.
Similarly designed pieces are now always similar in price. Gold is the perfect accent that turns ordinary homes into trendy pads. Get the look of this $150, gold wall piece from Lamps Plus, but the same design can be found at Pier 1 Imports for $24.99. Both pieces are equally as beautiful but the bills are not.
Candles have the ability to add something special to any home with their beauty and aroma. While Diptyque baies candles are all the rage on Instagram right now, they may leave your wallet feeling a little empty ($61?!). Voluspa candles are also having a major moment, and you can purchase this 6.2 oz, embossed-glass, scalloped-edge candle for just $20. Skip the shipping fee and purchase it at Pure Barre in Bethlehem!
These are just a few statement pieces that could add a little springtime trendiness to your home. Pay closer attention to the items you are purchasing and ask yourself whether or not they are worth the price. Chances are, you can find similarly looking items at half the cost, leaving both you and your wallet satisfied. Happy shopping!
