I personally think that many of the items we purchase can be realized effortlessly in our shelters at a fraction of the price we would pay in malls today. Have you ever walked through the shelves of Anthropologie thinking how ridiculous the price of a few domestic items were?

We’ve found many of these items far better than the original, needless to say that they are far more personal and full obstance, being the result of an experience, a quality amount of time spent hopefully with the loved ones.
