Furnishing a new home? Looking for the perfect piece, but can’t find it anywhere? Sick and tired of the same old home stores you’ve been shopping at? Whatever your reason for shopping, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, and boys who used to be girls (and vice-versa), it is with too much time on my hands and a whole lot of shopping that I present to you…
It’s the holy grail, the list of all lists, the better-than-Google-results guide to the best shopping resources for furniture, lighting, decor and general home goods. I’ve always wished I had access to a big ol’ list like this, so I could find exactly what I was looking for. Never found one, so I created one! No need to recall a zillion sites, now you can recall just one!
But before you’re lost in links for the next 3 hours, I must first let you in on the best shopping tip ever…
If you plan on doing any online shopping, ever, you need an Ebates account. You get paid to shop. That’s right, 100% free and legit – YOU GET PAID TO SHOP! How? Before you shop, simply log on to Ebates and check to see if the store is offering cash back (many do, some sadly do not.) If it is, click on the “Shop Now” button on the store’s Ebates page and continue on as you normally would. You’ll receive a percentage cash back on your completed purchase. The cash back rates are always changing, so keep an eye out for specials. Every few months, Ebates will cut you a check or deposit directly into your PayPal real cash money.
In just two years, I’ve made $624.35 total cash back. Yes, seriously! Ready to sign up? Click here to bounce over to Ebates, you’ll get a $10 gift card when you sign up and make your first purchase! Then pop back here to know where to shop!
And now that you’re one savvy shopper, without further ado, as promised, the comprehensive store list you’ve been waiting for…
THE ULTIMATE FURNITURE & HOUSEWARES STORE LIST:
Practically Spoiled Favorites:
Home Decorators << Good quality, on-trend furniture, rugs and decor for reasonable prices. They’re owned by Home Depot and their customer service is absolutely fantastic, speaking from first hand experience. Their best sales happen around holidays, so signing up for their emails is highly recommended to be in the know!
Kirklands << Don’t be thrown by the very “country” vibe at first glance. Mixed in are a lot of awesome, inexpensive, on-trend finds. This place is great for mirrors, wall art, lamps, picture frames and small furniture pieces. Watch for their sales, they usually are announced mid-week and are always worth waiting for.
Wayfair << I’ve ordered so much from Wayfair because they have great daily sales and there is typically always a 10% coupon code in my snail mail ValPak. They have everything! When you sign up for a (free) Wayfair account, you’ll also earn 3% Wayfair Bucks to use on future purchases. Their customer service is also fantastic and super nice.
Joss & Main << Owned by Wayfair, this flash sale site has a fantastic selection of home goods and furniture at reduced prices. The shopping experience is great on an iPad or iPhone, thanks to their very well designed app. I’ve scored some outdoor lighting and accessories and get this, the shipping was free (over $49) and I got it the very next day.
Ballard Designs << Really beautiful furniture, decor and tableware. The prices can be steep, but there are a lot of deals to be had in the “Bring Ballard Home” section, as well as when they run a good sale. Worth a looksie every once in a while if you like the Ballard style. In the world of custom upholstery, their prices are fantastic. If you sign up for their emails you’ll get a 10% off coupon.
JCPenney << They have furniture to bedding to kitchen goods and more, but JCPenney outshines the rest when it comes to window coverings. I have ordered nearly all of my curtains from them. With hundreds of fabrics, colors and patterns and the availability of a wide array of lengths, you’re bound to find exactly what your looking for at an affordable price… and use a coupon code on top of their great prices!
Walmart << Not sure most people think Walmart when it comes to home goods, but they should. Or we can just keep it our little secret… Walmart is great for inexpensive rugs, curtain rods, picture frames and the occasional decorative piece.
Lamps Plus << Not just lamps, lighting and fans, they also have furniture and decor. Tip: Check the Open Box section! I personally scored a $900 crystal dining room chandelier for just $279 here. Yup, I’m absolutely bragging. It was in perfect condition, and I’m very happy with it.
55 Downing Street << Owned by Lamps Plus, this site carries an expanded and more curated selection of the furniture and decor found at LP. With new sales everyday, you’re bound to find the item you’ve been eyeing on sale at some point in time.
Burlington Coat Factory << Much more than just coats! I love, love, LOVE their home section. My favorite finds there include super inexpensive designer linens, mirrors, art and decor. Hit or miss, but worth the trip. I’ve scored big and saved a lot there!
Dollar Tree << Yes, I said Dollar Tree. It’s all about the high-low mix, people! Fantastic for candle holders, candles, small picture frames and vases.
Home Depot , ACE Hardware, Lowes << Not just for lumber and paint, these good ole hardware stores also carry a selection of trendy lighting, mirrors, rugs, window treatments, outdoor furniture and more.
Blinds To Go << Custom blinds at a fraction of the cost of the “fancier” brands. Their turn around time is incredible (took about 5 days in my case.) I ordered most of our blinds from Blinds To Go and I couldn’t be happier with them.
Michaels, AC Moore, Hobby Lobby* << Craft stores aren’t just for crafts. Need frames? Prints? Florals? Vases? Try these stores first, and ALWAYS google for a coupon! *Hobby Lobby has a ton of great home decor!
