I recently found a bedding set for my three year old son. The price was quite high.... but with a little time and research I was able to find a reasonable alternative for a better bargain but the same look.
Here is the original set from Pottery Barn Kids. Roughly $230
Here is what I found as a replacement: roughly $85
I decided to do this for a few other items as well to show you haw it can be used almost anywhere :)
Original end table $130 Less expensive end table: $50
Original Jacobean Blue Rug: $1,000
Less expensive options: $206 and $215
Pottery Barn Sofa: $2,500 Target Sofa: $496
