Amy said: “Pay for the things you know will last forever and you won’t ever grow tired of. For everything else, pay as little as possible. Try to make things yourself. Get creative, especially for projects that require custom sizes. Sometimes just wandering around Home Depot you will come across the perfect fit in a product you never knew existed.”
Heather said: “Refinish furniture on your own. I recently purchased a solid oak dinette set that was 30 yrs old and in fantastic shape for $30 at a yard sale. Refinished it in black lacquer spray paint and distressed the edges. It looks fantastic. Paint supplies cost me $20 at Walmart.”
Anji said: “Buy a good couch or chair.”
Annie said: “I found a floor model curtain on clearance at Pier One. I cut it in half, making two curtains from the one, then stitched it up. I now have expensive looking lined curtains for a fraction of the cost. I paid about $12.00 total!”
Kasey said: “If your windows turn out to be odd sizes, you can use inexpensive sheets from Walmart to make attractive curtains.”

Tracey said: “New matching towels, even from Target and Kohl’s, in the bathrooms can make you feel like a million bucks and looks so nice and put together.”
Michelle said: “Shop thrift stores, consignment stores and garage sales! There are many Facebook groups that have started that are online type garage sales. Look for one in your area! Furniture can be repainted to fit your style!”
Marilou said: “Craigslist is awesome for indoor & outdoor furniture!”

Lori said: “Until we could afford real art work, I framed scrapbook paper and hung it on the walls in several rooms. I look back at those pictures now and almost wish I still had that on the wall. Very pretty and very inexpensive. I got a lot of compliments.”
Donna said: “I’m always taking outdoor pictures wherever we go. I print and frame the ones I really like, and receive many compliments over them + they are always special. It’s nice when someone gets enjoyment out of the same things I do!”
