Decorating On A Budget

I love beautifully decorated homes but truthfully my house’s decor is pretty much non-existent. Part of this is because we are renting and can’t do much, part is because I have young children around, and part of it is because I just don’t have a lot of money to invest in decorating.

I was excited when Family Dollar contacted me about their decor line and challenged me to decorate a room on a budget. I eagerly accepted and headed to the store. I knew that Family Dollar had a great selection but I hadn’t really explored the home decor section before. I was going to decorate my downstairs bathroom but then decided that no amount of home decorating would distract away from the hideous fish wallpaper {I rent a home from a fisherman apparently…} so I instead decided to do my entryway.

Cute fabric "cubbies" for the toys. Two for $5 at Family Dollar!

Family Dollar had a bunch of rugs, some even larger area rugs. I chose a brown and tan one for in front of the door that was $5. I picked out a few prints for the wall, one for $3 and a couple for $5. I found mini-shelves for less than $10 and a small plaque on a stand for only $2. I added in a small figurine on one of the shelves. I spent less than $30 on this area but it makes my home look a lot more inviting, don’t you think? I’m excited to go back and get great deals for the rest of my home!
