A design expert named Preston Konrad has shared his trick to getting designer furniture for hundreds of dollars cheaper.

In a stiched TikTok video, Konrad replied to the question: "What's a scam that's become so normalized that we don't even realize it's a scam anymore?"

"Overpaying for essentially white-labeled furniture," Konrad answered.

Konrad then said to simply go to the online retailer Spoken which allows you to search for any furniture item you are on the hunt for.

The expert explained that these items are essentially being made in bulk by a manufacturer but are "white-labeled" out to designer brands.

For example, Konrad pointed out the World Market Small Acorn Wood Brewton Dresser, which retails for a whopping $899.99.

However, on Spoken, the same exact dresser is listed on sites like Bed Bath & Beyond and Casaone under a different name for over $300 cheaper.

Several people took to the comment section to sing praise for Konrad's money-saving hack.

This will bring you to a Home Screen view that lets you hide individual pages by "unticking" them.

Once you're finished, just click Done in the top right-hand corner.

The apps on your hidden pages remain stored in the App Library, which you can access by scrolling all the way to the right of your home screen.

At any time, you can unhide your hidden pages by repeating the steps above and ticking them.
