One of the big ways I make my decorating dollar stretch is by buying what I can on Craigslist. This simply is not possible for everything, but it’s wise to check CL just in case!
I hope to redecorate every room of our house when we buy a new home, but like most of us, my budget is not huge. So, that will include repurposing items I own, buying on Craigslist, sewing and then also buying new.
Today, I want to share some items I pinned from Austin’s Craigslist that would help stretch the dollar in every room of your home.
