Cheap Fall Decor
Hello there internet momma ~ I have a teensy secret to share with you about decorating your home with cheap fall decor today. ❤️
Are you ready?
Um, you don't actually have to buy allllll the fall stuff at Hobby Lobby or the Dollar Tree.
I LOVE love love fall decor. And goodness, I love fluffing my home. But early in our marriage when our finances were tight, there just wasn't any wiggle room for a bunch of fall stuff to fluff our home up with. I mean – we didn't have a COUCH for three whole years as we prioritized other things we needed for our first place. (Like painting everything in sight to give our home a makeover in the cheapest way possible!)
See a peek at our very first home here. Whew!
Now when it comes to decorating for Fall, I'm so thankful that it's SO EASY to penny pinch. God just naturally kind of made cheap fall decor easy for us, didn't He? (Don't you just love that?)
DIY Fall Table Decoration
I realized back then that all I really needed was a pumpkin or two (under $5? yes please!), and whatever I could snip from my garden. Add it to a big ole' wooden tray, and I had all the cheap fall fluffin' supplies I needed without spending a penny.
(Bonus? I also wasn't adding a bunch of extra clutter that would eventually have to land in my storage bins!)
P-U-H-L-E-A-S-E, don't feel like you need to race out and spend a bunch of money to make your home look like other folks on Pinterest or Instagram.
I know it hurts a wee bit.
I know you'd love that to run out and buy all the stuff.
And goodness I KNOW what it feels like to see someone else's home and think ohhhhhhh gosh, I'd sure like all that stuff.
But I also know what financial freedom feels like on the other side of those wants, and I'm so so glad that in those early years we chose to skip the extra stuff, snip the stuff we already had, and be patient.
It's not easy.
It's not always fun.
But good gravy, it is so so worth it.
Bake some yummy bread.. Light a candle you already have.
Savor the season and the space God has given you today, and care for your bunch best.
Cheering for you today ~ you, your home, your family and your finances are so worth it, and goodness, I'd sure love to hear what you're fluffing in your home today too. Leave a comment to share!
