Are you paying too much?

Have you ever been tempted by something because of its beauty – only to look at the price tag? 🙋🏼‍♀️ If you’re a fan of household plants and succulents, you’ll want to read this simple, money-saving tip before heading to the store…

My sidekick Jami went to The Home Depot recently and looked at two different potted succulent plants. One arrangement was almost $80 and the other was under $30. The difference? The plastic urn planters. Aside of that, the succulent plant arrangements looked very similar! So before you pay too much, read what she had to say:

“I was looking at these beautiful succulent plants at The Home Depot and the price difference is crazy – with the biggest difference being the cheap plastic pots! One is tall and one is short, but they are practically the same plants. It would be a better deal to buy the smaller pot and then buy a cheaper urn somewhere else!”

SO, why pay $79.98 for this plant arrangement… 👇🏻

…when you can pay $29.98 for this plant and transplant it into a cheaper urn planter from somewhere else for much less (or even make your own)?! 👇🏻

Mind blown. 😱

“You can buy these plastic, bigger pots for super cheap at lots of different stores. I got this planter a long time ago at Kmart but I’m sure they sell them at lots of other stores, too! It still looks great!

    I have noticed that with the ferns Lowe’s offers. The hanging one is much less than the one already in a pretty colorful pot. You can save money by buying the hanging one and transferring it to a pot you have.

    I always buy hanging baskets on sale and repot them into planters. The plants are bigger than otherwise and cheaper too! I got a planter at aldi this weekend for 12.99 (!!) and then bought a hanging basket at lowes for $8. Around $20 and they wanted $50 at lowes for the pre-potted one that looked the same.

      That’s awesome to hear, Cristine! Thanks for sharing your score with us! I love grabbing new plants on the cheap this time of year!
