Head down to your basement storage locker to find some gloves for the cold weather, and inadvertently come across a box of Christmas decorations. I mean, it’s like, almost Christmas.
I love to decorate. I love to style pretty much all surfaces (vertical and horizontal) of my home. I do not have a lot of money (I do not love that), but I get by with my well developed thrifting skills. It took me some time, and a lot of patience, but it has now come to be a bi-weekly, if not weekly, occurrence for me. It’s cheap, and it’s great for the environment because you aren’t buying new crap, just reusing someone else’s old crap.
However, everything is so cheap that it is reallllllly hard not to go overboard. Here are a few ways that I avoid buying too much shit.
Another issue is not finding ENOUGH cool things, so here are some tips for the opposite problem
General Thrifting Tips
It’s important to remember you want your home to look nicely decorated, not like your opening up your own thrift store.
