Kick back and take a seat while enjoying your thrifty shopping skills!

Pottery Barn’s Cardiff Tufted Armchair for $799 + $65 delivery surcharge + $79.90 shipping sits at a whopping total of $943.90. The antique bronze nail heads make this chair GORGEOUS! I’ve had my eye on it for a while now but never bit the bullet and splurged.  And, boy, am I glad I didn’t.

Why spend all that money at PB when you can save some dough at and achieve the same results? Overstock’s Tafton Tufted Club Chair  for $376.99 + $2.95 shipping sits at a final price of $379.94.

The result of the purchase is the same…comfy and nice on the eyes!

Total Savings: $563.96, a 60% savings

Mirrored furniture is all the rage right now. From end tables to bureaus, you can find one in every high-end spread in the decor magazines. Downside? HIGH price tags. Luckily, I found a great knockout solution to this Horchow Mirrored Cube Ottoman/Stool at $889 each + $115 shipping = $1014

SERIOUSLY???  Who would pay that? Instead, I headed over to and found a similar deal that can fit into any household budget. Target’s Mirrored Cube for $99 even has free shipping.

Buy two and save an additional 15% thanks to Target’s furniture sale.  Although Target’s version is missing a bit of the edging detail…this gal can survive without it for the amount of money I would save on the purchase.

Total savings: $915, a 90% savings
