Everyone has their own taste when it comes to their home but one thing we all have in common is wanting to save a pound or two. And let’s face it, we all want to save some cash so there’s a little bit left over in the piggy for booze
GOOGLE SHOPPING TAB
This is what dreams are made of. Do you ever use it? Let’s take a ‘black round mirror’ as an example; simply type the key words into google’s search bar and then click ‘Shopping’. You’ll then be shown a whole load of similar products that range in style and price and you can narrow down your options by adding in filters like price, brand, location etc. We like to display them as a ‘grid’ (as pictured below), as it helps you clearly see all the of the options next to each other.
OUR HIGH END VS. HIGH STREET COMPARABLES
The Habitat patsy mirror is an item we both have and get lots of compliments on, but at £195 it’s not the cheapest mirror out there. Although the Zara one is 18cm smaller, it’s a mere £79.99 giving you a save of over £100.
This is another great example of how you can get the style you want at a lower price by shopping around. We’re huge fans of Swoon and think they’re prices are actually really affordable, but they can’t cater to every budget so the Sofas World option is fantastic budget find.
Ooh we love an exact match! With a little help from our friends at google, we found that Cult Living are selling this lamp for a whopping £69 compared to Iconic lights that are giving you an absolute bargain for just £20.
Cushions are something that a lot of us change up often when the seasons change, our moods change or when we want a re-fresh so no need to spend a fortune on them if they’er interchangeable. These MADE.com cushions are a bargain at £29 for two compared to Trouva.
Fan girling over @girlwiththegreensofa? Emulate her style with one of these emerald green beauties from – but if you fancy saving a penny or two, the Maisons Du Monde option coming in at £500.49 cheaper could be the winner? .
Add a bit of boho into your space with these cream / ecru berber style cushions, great for adding texture into a neutral scheme. But why pay £48 when you can pay £17.99? With H&M you can get 2 for the price of 1.
Marble can be expensive, but lets help you get it on the cheap. Both these side tables are a steal anyways, but a cool £71 deal from Shropshire design takes the biscuit. Yes please!
Just because something is cheaper doesn’t mean your skimping on quality. Two coffee tables, two great retailers – case and point.
Spot the difference…oh it’s just the price. These rugs could be related they’re so similar but one definitely has the bigger ego with that price tag.
Ok we know the cheaper version is a knock off of the real thing but haters gonna hate – we can’t help but love a bargain and with code TOPOLOGY12 you’ll get an extra 12% off the Only Home cheaper version!
So there you have it – next time you think about buying something, have a shop around and see what similar version you can find for a better deal. Please note, some of the links in this post are affiliate links.
