I'm so excited about this edition of Dollars of Pennies, because I've been lusting over the Dollar version for a few weeks now.
I mentioned earlier that I'm in love with the Elina Dhurrie Rug from Ballard Designs. Tribal in a modern, graphic way, I consider it a neutral in the print category. Stunning in pattern, but simple enough to go with anything. The 6x9 version is $399. Not outrageous, but this is a recession people.
Enter the Diamond Printed Kilim Rug from Urban Outfitters. A flatter weave and chocolaty color, this 5x7 baby won't even cost you as much as a trip to the movies. A newly reduced price of just $39.99. How could you beat that!
