What makes one thing more expensive than another is always based on many variables; size/dimensions, quality, finish, materials, demand/availability, brands... And it is always a personal choice in regards to what you are willing to sacrifice for the sake of saving a dollar or two. Sometimes we may decide to splurge on something because the quality can't be beat, and other times we may shop around and get the look by hacking an item from IKEA. It is all a give and take right?
I know many of you have expressed that finding items on a budget is important to you as well, but I also know many of you love stylish storage just as much as I do. So a new series is born; The High/Low Storage Game. And here are the first eight items I found to share with you today.
The best part is that the low cost version can absolutely function just as well as the item in the high end column. Some even have identical dimensions, but only cost a happy fraction of the price.
While I pulled these particular items, I used a variety of methods to find a budget version of the higher end design. So the next post on this subject won't be actual items, but general searching and sourcing tips so you can feel just as excited as I do when you win the high/low lottery. #itsatotalrush #gameon
I have already sourced even more high/low products because I fell down a rabbit hole of deals. But I would love to know if there are certain storage items that you would like for me to focus on specifically. It can be anything from underbed storage to hangers to a piece of furniture. I am game!
