I love a sale. A deal. A bargain. If I could, I’d probably visit Marshall’s, T.J. Maxx and Home Goods every weekend. But, you know, thankfully I have a life. Which is why I love flash sale websites, which allow me to bargain hunt from the comfort of my computer. Flash sales–basically short term online sample sales—started in the fashion world a couple of years back, but many now feature great home furnishings and accessories at equally way-marked-down prices. So if, like me, you’re more likely to max out your credit card at Pottery Barn than J. Crew, you’ll love these sites. Sign up online, and they’ll email you details of each day’s sales. Happy shopping!
One King’s Lane: This site specializes in home goods—from furniture to rugs to art, they’ve got it all.
eBay Daily Deals: The auction site now offers a slew of one-day only bargains and free shipping.
Apartment Therapy: While it’s not a sample sale site, this home blog does a comprehensive week-end round-up of home sales, both in-store and online. Check the site every Friday for The Weekend Guide post, or sign up for their daily newsletter to get details via email.
