Remember when I did a post telling you how to “Get It Cheaper” at Dollar Tree? I had some great feedback from that post and some of you even asked for another one. Today I’m telling you how to “Get it Cheaper” at Kirklands. Have you ever been to Kirklands? It’s amazing how inexpensive it is compared to some other stores that I adore. You know I’m in love with Pottery Barn and Pottery Barn Kids but you also know that it’s pricey if you don’t hit a sale or aren’t armed with gift cards. What I thought I’d do today is show you five things you can get at Kirkland’s that have lookalikes at big name stores. I chose five varying items to show you the gamut of savings (décor to furniture to bedding). Without further ado…
I love Anthropologie as much as the next design loving girl but this Kirkland’s sofa option would basically let you save a mortgage payment instead of purchasing Anthro’s Orrianna sofa… and you’d still get the dynamite tufted back.
I’m on the hunt for a great dough bowl, but can’t find an affordable one anywhere. I was antiquing with AJ’s mom and sister yesterday and found one I love for $160. About $140 more than I wanted to pay. 🙂 But this teak bowl from Kirkland’s has similar lines… and is quite a bit cheaper than this set of three from Interlude Home. To figure out the savings I did some dividing of the price of three by the varying sizes (the largest size would cost more if you were dividing it up, the medium size would be a little less, etc.).
Drew and Elle each had pieces of their nursery from Pottery Barn Kids and Baby but let me tell you, it’s not cheap, even though it’s beautiful. As I think about what I want Drew’s bedding to be like I’m eyeing pieces from PBK and then shying away because of the price. It was funny to see a very similar shark bedding set at Kirkland’s to the one that PBK has in stock now… especially because Kirkland’s come with a sheet set, a stuffed animal, bed skirt, sham and the duvet.
Lastly, I’ve been IN LOVE with the wingback headboard forever from Pottery Barn but couldn’t bring myself to spend nearly $1000… Kirkland’s has a look-a-like for those of you who have been in love with Pottery Barn’s but can’t afford it.
This post is NOT sponsored by Kirklands… these are just my findings on how you can save money while purchasing an item you already had your eye on.
IN THE COMMENTS: Give me an example of another place for the third “Getting It Cheaper” post.
