More or Less: Go for Gold (Save vs. Spend)

In honor of the Olympics, I’m encouraging everyone to “Go for Gold!” No not the gold medal, the gold metal (har har). Here are a few of my favorite gold home items that range from affordable to investment (or save vs. spend).  Keep in mind some of the items come from vendors like Wayfair and Hayneedle that fluctuate in prices so if the item is listed higher than what I priced, wait a week or two and it will drop in price again. Happy shopping!
