As a housewife I am striving to make our house more homey. Dave and I have different decorating styles and so for years we have had a hodgepodge of things that don’t go together.
While we struggle to agree on what the backbone of our home should look like we do both get excited for decorating for the various seasons.
But our budget for this is small. I usually get around $50 to decorate. To some of you that may seem tiny and to others enormous but the point is that there are ways to make your house a home with less.
Thrift for your Fall Decorations
I’ll admit, thrifting is hard for me. I do not have a natural talent for sorting through all the hodge podge but it is something that I am trying to develope.
But with a little patience you can find some amazing autumn deals. Our local Goodwill has tons of halloween costumes and decorations that they hoard all year and put out during the season.
I have also had good luck shopping at discount stores like TJ Maxx and Ross for holiday decor.
Shop Clearance Deals After Halloween
My absolute favorite way to shop for seasonal home decor is to check out the clearance sells the day after the holiday.
Most of the items in the above picture were from Hobby Lobby at 80% off last year.
You can bet that day after Halloween I am going to be hitting up the shops for all the great fall decorations.
Repurpose What You Already Have
Most of my decorations here were bought at Hobby Lobby on clearance.
One item I was able to use was this black and white checkered blanket that I just had lying around in storage. But I am loving the neutral colors and cozy fall vibes it is giving off.
I am willing to bet that you may have some items lying around that have some neutral or fall colors that you can incorporate into your seasonal decorating.
Decorate for Fall Not Halloween or Thanksgiving
One way that I am stretching our hard earned dollars is to decorate for the autumn season rather than for Halloween or Thanksgving. You can get two holidays in one and get double the bang for your buck.
I try to focus on burnt oranges, deep yellows, wood and cream accents rather than spiders, witches, and turkeys.
DIY with Autumn Crafts
Another area that I do not quite shine in is the diy arena. But that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t love to improve and break out the fall crafts!
My kids would love to do some crafts with sticks, leaves, and pinecones.
These kinds of things can be virtually free and make for the ultimate low budget fall decor.
