Check Out Outlets
Although I fell in love with the red couch at my local Crate and Barrel store, I ventured to a C&B outlet further away to see if they have better deals. They did have some great ones, but I decided to stick with the red sofa. The store samples that don't get sold are sent to the outlets and you can sometimes get a bigger discount. Be sure not to wait it out too long if you love an item, because chances are someone else loves it too.
