4 Ways To Save Money When Decorating
Achieve a glam home while cutting back on expenses with these ideas
We'll let you in on a secret—you can deck out your home in beautiful decor without spending a lot. Not to mention, doing so can be very rewarding. Aside from having a clear vision of the look you want, shopping for pieces and scouring Craigslist, we've rounded up four handy hints that can help you keep your savings happy in the bank.
1. Visit thrift stores, Divisoria, or Dapitan regularly.
Don't let the overwhelming amount of furniture and decor stop you from finding a gem or two when visiting a local flea market. Trust us, scouring the aisles of these estate sales for hours on end will be worth it once you unearth items that can be the perfect additions to your home. These unique finds serve as great conversation pieces, too!
2. A little DIY never hurts.
While it can be exciting to find stunning pieces for cheap, we have to admit that shopping at secondhand stores can be a hit or miss. If you make the mistake of buying something that sticks out like a sore thumb from the rest of your decor, consider giving it a makeover before trading it for an expensive department store piece.
3. Trade treasures with your friends.
Whether you are moving or redecorating, it's only natural that you'd want to get rid of a few things—chances are, your friends feel the same way. Before dumping everything out, consider organizing a furniture swap. You never know if the piece you've been searching for might be something a friend wants to let go of.
4. Bookmark a few of your favorite subscriptions.
Subscriptions are a great way to find out about private sales and promos your favorite stores might be holding. Get first dibs on goodies by signing up for brands from all brackets, including high-end ones that you would never think of shopping at—because it might just help you score the bargain of your life.
