Frugal Find: Outdoor Patio Furniture

As I've said before, I love a good deal as much as the next girl, especially when I've been patiently waiting to make a purchase. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for a super-affordable patio set to aid in the much-needed makeover of my back porch. I've looked a bit online to see what catches my eye, but I haven't done any serious shopping... hoping to find something used, or on sale in an end-of-the-season clearance. In my online searches, I've liked this Maldives patio set from World Market:

So you can imagine my delight when, on my 2nd lap around World Market a couple days ago, I found a few left-over pieces on a super-duper clearance tucked behind a display.

They were 50% off for basic end-of-the-season clearance. A great deal, right? Well, this particular set was an additional 25% off because the manufacturer forgot to put the outdoor sealant on it. Well, that's easy! I can take care of that! A patio set at 75% off? Yippee! Imagine my glee when they told me I could ALSO use my 15% off coupon on top of the 75% off. That's a total of 90% off! So I stocked up!

One of these:

Two of these:

And a table:

At a price tag of under $100 for all 4 pieces, I couldn't be happier! The clerk who checked me out was aghast at the deal I'd found.

Let the back porch makeover commence!


  1. Ooh! Those are great pieces...and an unbelievable deal! Good work.

  2. You are one of the luckiest deal finders in the want to do my shopping too?
