This week was INTENSE for saving $$$ on super cool stuff!!

I am upcycling a table this weekend (post to come next week) and I wanted to get some new knobs. I stopped by Anthropologie, which is notorious for being expensive in my mind, and hit their sale section HARD. I came away with 4 knobs and 2 wall hooks for $28 total! If I estimate correctly, they would have totaled around $60 at full price! #WINNING

Then, I hit Urban Outfitters. I managed to pick up a DL & Co skull candle AND a set of 3 nesting tables for $30 total!! The candle is originally anywhere from $65-85 originally, and while I can’t find the tables anywhere online, the cheapest furniture at UO starts at $49 for a magazine stand, so I figure they were originally priced around $60…

Anthro and UO sales are great for picking through home goods to find the stuff that’s super marked down. It typically takes me about 30 minutes, at a minimum, to really find a gem since they have so much and frequently the sale section isn’t the only place where things have been marked down.

I’m feeling so “inspired” that I might even hit the Meadowlands Flea Market again this weekend since I’ll be in Clifton, NJ for my grocery shopping. I kinda feel like looking for antique doorknobs, tiny end tables and maybe a coat rack that I can spray paint.

Happy thrifting & have a fab weekend
