4 Money Saving Decorating Ideas

by The Organized Dream

When you’re looking for something to fill a wall or add a little pizzazz to an empty space, it doesn’t have to cost you big bucks. Looking in the right place will save you money and still add excitement to your home. Here are some great places to look the next time you’re looking to decorate!


There are so many printable resources out there now-a-days. Pinterest is the number 1 source for me when I’m looking for a printable to decorate my home. I mostly use Pinterest for printables around holidays and changing of seasons.

Most are free and some are links to Etsy shops.. Many Etsy shops offer printables at reasonable prices. There are so many options when it comes to printables, too! By uploading them to photo centers like CVS, Walgreens, Shutterfly and Snapfish, you can make your own posters and canvases. You can even have your printables printed on wood and metal for a more one-of-a-kind look.

Thrift Stores

By visiting thrift stores, you’ll come across things that you normally wouldn’t see in department stores. While there are some items that are vintage and beautiful the way they are, you can also be inspired to create your own piece by upcycling a thrift store find. Making your own sign is super fun and a great way to get that perfect piece without spending a lot of money on something mass produced.

Clearance Sections

It really doesn’t matter what store you go into. There is always going to be a clearance section. This is the best place to find hidden jewels that you just wouldn’t buy full price. Even though most items are discontinued and may be a little out of style, you can also find items that were placed there simply to get rid of.

Off-Price Retailers

An off-price retailer is a hugely popular place to decorate your home for cheap. Places like T.J. Maxx, Marshall’s and Burlington Coat Factory are awesome for finding art pieces and home decor accents for a fraction of the original price. There isn’t necessarily anything wrong with these items, either. They’re simply sold in these retailers when department stores have too much in stock or tiny little defects prevent big name stores from selling them.
