Decorating on a Budget – Part 2
Posted at 6:20 PM by I am THAT Lady: Lauren
My favorite place to shop for curtains is Bed Bath and Beyond. When I tell people this, I usually get the reaction of “they are so expensive!” I love to tell them about all the great deals I usually get there. They have THE best clearance section EVER! When I was speaking with one of the managers, she told me that everything that is in the store for a year, they automatically move to clearance. The longer it stays on the clearance rack, the more reduced it gets. Items are then marked 33%, 50%, or even 75% off the clearance prices! You can also use Bed Bath and Beyond coupons that you get in the mail, or from the newspaper fliers. They have 20% off coupons or $5/$15 coupons, that come out a few times per month. These do have expiration dates, but did you know that it doesn’t matter? Bed Beth and BEyond will take their own expired coupons! They also will take more than one coupon per transaction. We used 6 of them to buy our curtain panels. They automatically come off the MOST expensive items, usually stores take them off the cheapest items.
My husband and I were so excited to buy 3 nice curtain rods, 6 thick luxurious curtain panels, and 4 ties backs. We spent $115 on all of this! Even Walmart curtains are expensive now, running $30 per pair. When shopping for our new house we decided to look at Bed Bath and Beyond for our curtains first. We always try to plan our rooms around the curtains because we like thick, rich looking curtains and usually they can be VERY pricey. JCPenney’s has curtains like this for $50 per panel!!!! OUCH!
