In my home, I strive to create a modern and beautiful place where my company can relax.  When they visit, I want my home to be a little oasis away from the hustle and bustle of their busy lives.  I love being able to give my home a fresh current look without taking out a second mortgage.

In order to do that, it takes some homework.  While researching faucets for my home, I was able to find some great knockoff items that are quite a deal!

I found this beautiful small vanity at Home Depot that I absolutely love, but at $592 (with free shipping) it is out of my budget.  I checked Amazon and found an almost identical one for $242.17.  Amazon does charge $139.00 for shipping, but I found Coupon Code "BLOG" to save an additional $10. Even with paying shipping, I'm still saving $187.75 – that's a 31.7% savings!

So, of course, with that brand new beautiful vanity I would need a new sink. I love the glass bowl look.  At Home Depot they have the perfect one, but sadly it costs $690 (with free shipping). Again, out of my budget.  So I headed back to Amazon and found this nearly identical sink for…wait for it…$40.00! You'll have to pay $9.95 shipping, which brings your savings to $640.05 – a 92.8% savings!


Finally, I needed to put some icing on my vanity cake – a new faucet!  Home Depot has this beautiful bamboo lavatory faucet for $593 (again, free shipping).  I couldn't spend more on a faucet than I did the sink and vanity combined, so back to Amazon it was, where I found this nearly identical faucet that I actually like better for $59.99 – with free shipping too!  That's a savings of $533.01 – an 89.9% savings!!!
