grey Dhurrie rug {want it for less tips and tricks}

Ladies, ladies, ladies. Let me just say I admit that I have expensive taste. Tell me I'm not the only one. But today's "want it for less Wednesday" find was such a huge score that I wanted to write a special post about it. This is how I decorate on a budget and get my hands on some pricey items for a fraction of the cost....gangsta' style.

Today's money saver is my grey Moroccan Dhurrie Rug.

When I first saw this rug I fell head over heels for it and was undeniably attached. The problem was it was $800 for the 8x10 at Urban Outfitters. This made me hyperventilate a tad. Heavy price tags usually translate to long term commitment for me, which makes me nervous.

I kept looking and scouring the internet until I found the exact same rug, in the exact same size on Overtsock for merely a fraction of the cost at $379. I immediately wanted to add it to my cart and buy it...but doing my research and waiting for a week while I thought about it, paid off. Here is how I saved an additional $145.

*I first waited for a site-wide rug sale of $15% off and free shipping.
*I looked for a coupon code and saved an additional 12% because I'm fierce about saving.
This brought my total to $284 which was a steal for an $800 rug.

I was satisfied with my combined savings and quickly ordered it. When I received the rug I noticed two tiny stains on one of the corners. After contacting Overtsock about the stains, they offered me the option of sending me a new rug or they would credit be back an additional $50. I opted to save the additional $50 and use carpet cleaner to blot the stains out.

This brought my new total down to $234. Which means I saved enough money to make me do my happy dance. I adore the rug and truly love it more and more in the space, but knowing I saved all of that money makes me even happier.

So far, by simply looking for my favorite master bedroom finds & DIYing some items myself, I have saved a lot of money.

Full cost if purchased in stores is $3700
for my Bench, Let's spoon sign, Mirror framed art, gold desk lamp, headboard & rug

My Current Cost for those same items is $675

Not too shabby.... How do you guys save money on your favorite items? Do you save and splurge or get creative?
