TCJ: You’re a tried-and-true member of the budget decorating club, which we can totally appreciate. Your blog is full of DIYs—what are some other ways to save money but still have a gorgeous home?
AA: I am a big fan of thrifting. I love the thrill of searching for treasures and how exciting it can be to find something that works for such a reasonable price. I also think shopping your home and moving things around really makes a difference when you are ready for changes without spending too much. And while this is still considered a DIY, paint makes all the difference! It changes the look or condition of something affordably.
TCJ: Also, on the note of budget decorating, where are some of your favorite places to shop for home décor?
AA: I love to do my pillow accessory shopping at Target, HomeGoods, Marshalls, IKEA, and H&M. For bigger items, I have found some really good deals at Wayfair. And of course, thrift shops are always a good idea, too!
