Splurge vs. Save - Office Desk Edition

I feel like I'm on a home office roll lately! In case you missed it, I've covered tips for creating an inspiring home office, a desk wish list with options to fit different home office setups, shared my own home office reveal.


Does anyone else remember the TV show "The Look for Less"? It aired in the early 2000s and the premise was finding outfits that resembled high-end designer looks for, you guessed it, less. I loved how they went into stores that are easily accessible to the masses like TJ Maxx to create more affordable outfit look-a-likes.


I love applying this same concept to interior design and home decor. HGTV magazine features a column called "The High/Low List" in each issue.

Well, since I'm on a bit of a home office kick, I figured I could create my own version of the High/Low List, starting with desks.
