crave vs save.

It’s time for another Crave vs. Save post today!

I went to the Gold Rush Days flea market this past weekend (see my recap of last year’s market here) in which I was bombarded by an array of vintage goods and hard-to-pass-up antiques. The more I looked around, the more I realized I already had several of the treasures I was seeing on display; the only difference was that I [happily] paid a fraction of the price for most of those items compared to what they were being sold for (all thanks to shopping at estate sales, garage sales, and thrift shops). This reminded me that whether it’s a simple piece of milk glass or a large furniture item, it’s important to do your research, bargain hunt and price compare for particular items you want so you don’t end up paying more than you should, or have to!

These crave vs. save posts are a prime example of the money you can save when you do your homework and hold out to find the best deal…

HAPPY FRIDAY! You guys know I love changing and improving rooms to reflect my constantly evolving taste and style which has the potential to get pretty expensive. However, between DIY projects, shopping second-hand and scouring for the best deals, it’s actually very manageable! Below is a prime example of how shopping around and price comparing can save you hundreds. Like I always say, high style doesn’t have to come with a high price tag!
