Splurge vs Steal, Summer Home Decor


Now that summer’s officially here, it seems like there’s a neighborhood BBQ or family get together every weekend, and I’m feeling festive – time to refresh our beach towels, stuff for dining & entertaining and outdoor decor. I did a little online window shopping and found pricier items and their less expensive matches (in two cases it’s the same product but way more affordable!) If you want to score some major deals on your summer spruce-up, check out my splurge vs. steal roundup, summer home edition!
