In this week's post, I wanted to share some helpful information about how to furnish your home on a tight budget.  Even if you are not on a tight budget, who doesn't want to save a little money? Since the Great Recession of 2008 to 2010, we have all experienced a little tightening of the belt, and good habits are, well, they're good to keep. In an article posted online by Uma Campbell of RecycleScene, she writes about home decor and home design trends.  

"The concept of recycling and reusing old items is beneficial for the environment, your health, the health of the world, and your wallet. Being willing to forgo new items for second-hand and gently used items has a serious impact on your wallet. This is even more beneficial when you’re getting ready to make big purchases. After you’ve bought your home or moved into a new apartment, the next big expense you’ll have is furnishings. Furnishing a new home or apartment is an expensive task, but being willing to put the extra time, effort and energy can save you big money, so read on for how to furnish your home on a budget.

When picking items for your new home, be sure to keep in mind durability and style. Have a decor style in mind before you make your purchase to ensure that you don’t end up with a hodgepodge of items in the end. By being careful about your purchase, and choosing some secondhand recycled items, you’ll guarantee that you won’t break the bank when furnishing your place."
