TikTok user Marilyn, aka Marilyn2685, made three surprising discoveries at Walmart.

This included lanterns and some baskets.

In the video, she compared the prices of her find with the branded versions available online.

The difference in price was surprising, while actual product comparisons showed a high level of similarity between high-end products and Walmart bargains.

Her post read, “Here’s proof you don’t have to shop big to look good,” while pointing to a line of lanterns available at Walmart.

A small Black Lantern is listed for just over $13, a medium one for around $17, and a larger model for just over $21.

The video then features Pottery Barn’s best selling indoor/outdoor lantern, ranging in price from $69 to $349 depending on size.

For a price comparison, Walmart’s larger lamp saves you about $328 before tax.

That’s about a 94% savings and both items look remarkably similar.

Next, she compared the two wooden bowls: The Walmart version cost $37, and the other, a wooden “Dough Bowl Tray” from Pottery Barn, cost $249.

Pre-tax cost savings are $212, a savings of just over 85%.

Finally, she showed two baskets to decorate your home.

The Walmart version retails for $27, while a more expensive model from home decor site Serena & Lily was $178.

Again, it’s difficult to tell the difference between the two models.

If you had bought the cheaper version, you would have saved $151 before tax.

That’s about 85% savings.

The self-described “NewYorican (New York Puerto Rican) Boy Mom” ​​has nearly 350,000 followers and her post has garnered nearly 1,500 likes.

Tiktok users have lost weight.

One, Kim, the hobbyist, said she got a cheap bowl from Walmart.

Another, Sarah, was even more budget conscious. She said, “I don’t want to spend the low price either. Just waiting to see what thrift stores are up to.”

And Rachel added: “A lot of people are interested in the label. I personally don’t.”
