Christmas in September!

I'm not sure what's going on, but two of my favorite home decorating stores, Target and Pier 1 Imports, have been having fantastic clearance deals as of late.  And as a result, I need to start selling some of our extra furniture pieces on Craigslist to build back up my 'home decor' fund fast:)!

Here are my recent Target finds:

It's an amazing haul, no?

The sunburst mirror was $12.08 (50% off).
The quatrefoil mirror was $9.64 (50% off).
The yellow rosette pillow was $12.48 (50% off).
The yellow shower curtain (which may turn into regular curtains) was $3.74 (75% off).
The leaf curtains were $4.98 (75% off).
The blue king bedding set was $24.98 (75% off).

After much searching, I did track down an azul floral 5' x 7' rug for $49.98 (75% off).
And a super comfy Home Medallion 5' x 7' rug for $32.48 (75% off).
The other rug that you see the top of on the left side of the image above is the azul floral runner for $22.48 (75% off).  I'm still debating whether or not that one is a keeper.

Since I picked up the blue duvet for my parents, my total for everything else is about $150, including the runner rug which may get returned.  That total is pretty amazing considering the 5' x 7' floral rug is normally $200 alone!

Now, on to Pier 1.  Here are my finds:
Total for everything pictured: $40.69.

2 Beaded Pillows: $6.18 each (75% off)

Fun Teal Throw: $12.48 (75% off)

Lantern: $6.18 (75% off)

Fall Potpourri: $1.78 (90% off)

Blue Bottle: $2.98 (75% off)

Succulent Tea Lights: $1.48 (75% off).

I've got big plans for all of these goodies.  Many of them will end up in our basement once we turn our focus to decorating that space later this fall.  I heart clearance scores!


  1. Awesome buys! I just bought a beautiful beaded pillow from Pier One reg $39 reduced to $9.98; made in India.. I love when you can find nice stuff at stellar prices!

  2. Great score! I just love Pier 1 lately. I may have gotten a couple more 75% off pillows myself last I had a 15% off entire purchase coupon that was good on sale and clearance merchandise as well!

  3. Are the azule rugs still for sale?

    1. It doesn't look like Target sells them anymore in that color. This rug is very similar in a different color: Good luck on your rug hunt!
