My Current Obsession Leads to ANOTHER Frugal Find!

 

I know, I know...I've already posted my Frugal Find this week...I'm totally cheating. But I couldn't wait to share this with you! Lately, I have been on a mission to find the perfect accessories for my soon-to-be remodeled kitchen that I blogged about last week. As mentioned, the kitchen will have white painted cabinets, Absolute Black honed counter tops and a White Carrara Marble back splash. But those are the only details I will share at this time, because I want the finished product to really speak for itself!

Anyways, back to my accessories....because the kitchen is going be such a clean, white, polished space, I need to find accessories that will not be distracting. So I thought that a few clear glass apothecaries would be the perfect addition.....besides, I have been obsessing over them for months!! They are such a hot commodity right now, so I knew they wouldn't be difficult to find, but what I didn't know is that I would find them at such a ridiculously low price!

The first apothecary jars I encountered were these from Hobby Lobby....they range in price from $39.99-$59.99 a piece. I loved the shape and size, so I purchased all three. But when I got them home, I realized they were too tall to use on our kitchen counter tops. So...the search was back on...

And look what I found tonight for a fraction of the price! Very similar apothecaries, however this time the prices ranged from $6.99 - $14.99 a piece!! That's quite a difference!! And as it turns out they were the perfect height, so I bought four of them for a total of only $40.00! Where, you ask? Home Goods, of course! Why didn't I just go there in the first place?!

When I got home, I set them all out on the dining room table to decide which ones I will keep and which ones I will return. But I love them all! So...for now, I will keep them all as I'm sure I can find a place for each of them...if not in the kitchen, probably in the bathrooms.
