We all know Wayfair is an affordable place to shop for furniture and home decor items. The selection of anything from lighting to rugs to dining room sets is seemingly endless, and there is something on the site for every price point and aesthetic.

But are you aware of the Wayfair open-box deals section?

There are literally 184 pages of extremely discounted items you can score in this section. But why are they so heavily discounted? Is there something wrong with them? No, these are just items that were purchased and returned, not for being damaged but just because they didn’t work out for the original buyer. Maybe the sconce somebody ordered stuck out too far from the wall, or the bookshelf they purchased didn’t quite fit into the space where they imagined it living.

But one man’s “trash” is another man’s treasure, right?!

Here are some of the crazy discounts you can score in the Wayfair open-box section of the site.

Wasser Coffee Table
