More Bang for Your Buck

So, anyone that knows me is very well aware that I do not let a good deal go unnoticed. Yes, I am a cheap-o. BUT, I will not compromise style in the process. I think that stylish, good quality items should be available to everyone because we all deserve to feel spoiled and oh-so-glam...even if we only spent mere pennies in the process.

With that in mind, I bring you my More Bang for Your Buck posts. Occasionally, I am blown away when I find an item's "twin" for so much less that its original. Does this ever happen to you? It feels so great, right?

So, for a while now I had been eyeing the Pin-Tuck Duvet from West Elm, and almost ordered. Well I am glad I didn't because to my surprise, on a recent trip to Target, I found its TWIN! Yay!

So here is West Elm's Pin Tuck Duvet:

This beautiful duvet cover retails for 99 bucks (full/queen size) and if you want to add the matching standard shams for 19 bucks each, you are looking at a total of $137. A fair price for this posh bedding, but we are trying to get the most bang for your buck, right? Right.

Now, step into my office to take a look at Target's Home Kissing Pleat Comforter set for the sweet price of $86 (queen), which already comes with two standard shams and a bed skirt! Plus, it's not a duvet, so you won't need an insert for it. This fabulous comforter also comes in smokey blue and a latte color. Take a looksie:

So, there you have it. Save some moolah, and go get yourself a mani/pedi with your savings! You earned it!
