    Today, more than ever, finding just the right product or service at just the right price is an important part of any purchasing decision. When it comes to renovating or buying accessories, furniture or dcor items for your home, the dollars can really add up fast! So where do you shop to get great deals and the best selection? For our cover story, we went to the source the design experts. Weve also compiled

    many of the GTAs top shops and services to create this years Ultimate Guide to Home Shopping which youll find at the back of this issue.

    Ill leave you with three tips of my own that have come in handy after renovating numerous homes and rooms over the years:

    1 The Internet is your friend Rather than blow hour-after-hour of precious weekend time visiting furniture stores and renovation shops, do some shopping online first. Compare the prices and details of similar pieces of furniture at 10 to 12 different stores in a matter of minutes, rather than hours, and call them if there are no prices listed and get estimates. 2 Check out the goods in person As convenient as it can be to shop online, its still important to be careful about buying goods and services solely on the basis of an image on the Internet or by referral. Try to inspect the actual item before you buy so you can see its overall finish and appearance and measure, measure, measure! Another benefit of examining items in person, avoiding exorbitant shipping fees and being able to negotiate. 3 Plan ahead before you buy You may fall in love with the look of a certain piece, but take a moment to make sure it works and make sure you can transport the item if its a hefty piece (and how much it will cost). Find out there is a return policy. Reflect on how the piece will hold up after a few encounters with small children or pets. If its likely to be trashed in mere weeks or months, dont buy it.

    Good luck in your hunt, and do let us know if youve found any new shops or services that you think we should add to our publication next year!
