“Dumpster diving” is a great way to find free decorative items for your home.
Do you often see people moving into and out of your area of town? Visit these types of neighborhoods regularly. At moving time a lot of people start to get desperate and will often throw away beautiful and barely used things to save themselves some packing time. It might be hard to believe but some people create entire decorating schemes out of items they find at curbsides and dumpsters. It is a good idea to make sure that the things you find are actually items you can take home. Quickly checking with the homeowners is all you need to do.
Buy new rugs to replace your existing ones.
Even homes with wall to wall carpet can be given a new look with rugs-just use rugs that take up most of the floor space. Most department stores have room-sized rugs that you can use to decorate with. Accent rugs make excellent addition to rooms with hardwood floors. Changing out your accent rugs when you want to update a room is easy and doesn’t usually cost much money at all. If you know how to knit or crochet, you could even make your own using old sheets and clothes!

Choose pieces that you like and that you think work well with what you already have. Heck, you might have some things in your home already that will work just fine! Tap in to your inner artist! If you have an old watering pot you can turn it into a centerpiece! Look at what you have around you and what you want to accomplish and then look for ways to cut the cost of that project in half.
