A thrifty mom revealed how she used Kmart pet pillows to outfit her new daybed and saved her family nearly $ 700.

“I hid at Kmart and found those nice big soft dog beds with pillows,” she said.
The dog bed sets are $ 25 each and come with a large base pillow and two side pillows.
The mother took five of the beds home for $ 125 and was pleased to find that they “fitted perfectly”.
People couldn’t believe she’d used dog beds to transform the lovely day bed.
“If only I had seen this before I bought my million dollar pillows,” wrote one woman in the Post.
“You’re so smart – that looks great,” said another.
And others thanked her for finding a solution to their exact problem.
“Brilliant, I have a day bed and I also need a big pillow. I tried to find an alternative, thank you, ”cheered a woman.
“That’s great – all I have to do now is get a daybed,” joked another.
Some warned them to “bring them inside” when not in use to prevent them from fading.
