I have been on the hunt for a really big but cute looking toy box or basket to catch all the things for quite some time now. There was one on Pinterest I saw that I absolutely adored but when I found out where it was from and how much it was, I almost passed out. Restoration Hardware (first clue it was going to be pricey) and the price tag on it was $300+. Whaaaaa? Even if I a millionaire I don’t think I could justify that. It’s EXACTLY what I was looking for but I guess I’ll keep looking.
Then this morning comes around and I’m strolling around through Hobby Lobby one more time before I check out with some new goodies for Amelia’s room (more on that next Monday) and I spotted the EXACT SAME BASKET as I turned down the aisle. I nearly ran to it thinking someone might snatch it out from under me (even though no one else was in the aisle).
The only difference is it doesn’t say “TOYS” on it which is even better because now I can use this basket for the rest of my life! And the best part? It was $50!!! I’ll just let you take that in for a minute.
You guys, FIFTY DOLLARS!!! I could have bought six of these for the cost of one Restoration Hardware basket!
Sadly I can’t find the link online but if you check out your local Hobby Lobby, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to find the same one there! It was in the 50% off section!
Moral of the story: Don’t buy something you ay regret because a look alike may be right around the corner!
