Splurge vs Save

Our kitchen remodel starts on Monday. I’ve never been more excited to see something get torn down.

As much as you try to save where you can, there just isn’t any escaping how pricey kitchens are to renovate. Labor, materials and appliances, it adds up and it adds up fast. Which is why we’ve waited so long to take the plunge.

And like I mentioned before, this isn’t our forever home so we are trying to make some budget-conscience decisions because we’re financially responsible like that.

So as much as TH fell for the Aga stove, it would be a stupid decision to put something that pricey into a home we would eventually move from. Doubtful any home buyer would appreciate its beauty as much as TH.

As part of the Splurge vs. Save campaign Credit Card Insider asked me to be a part of, I thought I’d share another kitchen item we’re saving on.

I love the look of farmer/apron sinks but those too can get pricey. So I came across one that looks like a long lost twin that married rich. It’s three times as much. You’d think it’d wash the dishes for you. And we already have an actual dishwasher, so save it is.

Um, I’ll take three saves please.

Happy savings!

    I don’t think there’s anything better than finding something that looks exactly the same as what you want at 1/4 the price 🙂
