Don’t Discount the Discount Store

April 22, 2013


I am always amazed at the random and wonderful things you can find on shopping trips when you are really looking for something else.  I admit it, I love going to Big Lots for bath and kitchen goods.  They have some great deals and great smelling soaps.  Now before I get off the subject too much, I spied some amazing accessories for the home there.  The standout pieces were black horse bookends to corral reading materials, bottles with graphics to dress up a shelf, metal containers to organize with, numbered knobs to transform that old little dresser, and vintage printed pillows to jazz up a sofa.  All of these are fashionable and affordable options for decorating the home.  Now the key to shopping discount stores like Big Lots is to have a design plan.  If you know the direction you are going, then when you come across gems like these, you know you have hit the jackpot!  So before you go to those fancy decorating stores and spending so much money on that pillow that you can’t afford the chair, take your time and peruse through places like Big Lots, Home Goods, & Ross.  You never know what you may find.
