If you’re decorating your home on a budget there are a number of ways to save. Skipping large remodels in favor of a simple re-painting of your home’s interior, shopping for decor at the thrift store or yard sales, or re-using items around your home are all good ideas. But did you know there are a number of options to help you decorate your home you can buy at the dollar store? Dollar store items may have a bad reputation, however there are four things that are you can find at the dollar store that are perfect for decorating your home.
1. Picture Frames
Most dollar stores sell picture frames at just $1 each. The great thing about the picture frames is there are several sizes to choose from. That means you can decorate your walls with pictures, or find smaller frames for family photos to display on top of cabinets. The picture frames that I’ve purchased at the dollar store have lasted a few years and the paint is still well in tact.
2. Seasonal Accessories
If you like to change the look of your home based on the seasons, shopping on a budget may mean some difficult decisions. But dollar stores usually have a lot of seasonal items you can purchase. If it’s Christmas you can find ornaments, small fake trees, lights and garland at the dollar store. You can also find Easter decorations, halloween candy and décor, and 4th of July sparklers.
3. Party Decorations
Speaking of seasons, there are several stores that are dedicated to only party supplies. But you can find most items that you need to celebrate a birthday or other special event at your local dollar store. Most dollar stores carry party favors, plates, and balloons for celebrations like weddings, birthdays, graduations and more. You can even find banners at the dollar store to say happy birthday or to welcome guests into your home.
4. Do it Yourself Decorating
If you have a family you may want to think about fun art projects for the kids to help decorate your home. Trust me when I say you will keep anything your kids make for the holidays to decorate your home so encourage them to help out with your decorating. You can find affordable art supplies at the dollar store to help your kids get inspiration. Kids can create picture frames, holiday posters, and other trinkets to display around the home. It’s not only affordable it’s also a great way to keep the kids busy and encourage their creativity.
You can find all assortments of candles at the dollar store. Candles are a great way to add an elegant look to your home and whether you like them big or small, scented or un-scented, the dollar store will have you covered. Plus you can buy several candles at the dollar store for the same price as one candle at the store in the mall.
