One of the best parts about moving into a new home is having a blank slate to decorate your new space however you want, but one of the bad parts is the price tag that comes with decorating your new pad. There’s nothing better than being able to show off your impressive interior design skills, but now you’ll also be able to brag about how much money you saved in the process of creating this masterpiece.
Shop Around Back-To-School Season
Stores like Target and IKEA have some amazing deals going on around back-to-school time. Target, in particular, brings out many more options and styles of things they do sell year-round, but they also bring out a ton of things they only sell around college move-in season. Things that are sold year-round tend to be a bit discounted around this time, and things that aren’t sold year-round will generally be discounted around October once the season is coming to a close. IKEA is always a good idea in my book; it’s reliable and super affordable. You always know you’ll find what you need at IKEA since they sell the entire world inside that store. You can really save a ton of money by shopping at these stores at the right time.
Find Discount Stores Online
In this day and age when everyone is starting to move their shopping loyalties to online stores, finding discount shops online is getting easier and easier. Stores like Overstock can be amazing for finding stylish deals. Usually, the items at this store are still in-style and popular, which is amazing since you’re getting such a good deal on everything. Around holidays you can also get deals like discounts on furniture or free shipping on top of the already-great deals you’re already getting, so keep your eyes peeled for that, too!
DIY Home Decorations
If you or someone you’re close with happens to be crafty or artistic, don’t miss out on the opportunity to make your own home decorations! Whether it’s a picture frame or a coffee table, a piece of art hanging on the wall or an entire shelving unit; not only will creating something yourself save you a ton of money, but it will also add a touch of personalization to your house. Sometimes DIY projects even look better than store brought products, and the best part is that it is one-of-a-kind.
