3 Quick Ways To Save To Jump Start Your Decorating Dollars!


Oh yea, we are about to get started with a decorating refresh of ideas that won't break our bank or our!  

I've got 2 projects I've asked my husband about because of course, it's his home too ;-)!  He gave me the green light and we are off to the races!! Check out these jump start ideas I have to save some dollars for our next decorating project and refresh!  Oh, I forgot to mention, we are saving to get backsplash in our kitchen and for paint (the good stuff!!), to refresh our powder room.

3 Quick Ways To Save Your Decorating $'s

1. Piggy Bank or Cookie Jar - Remember back in the day, a piggy bank or that cookie jar on top of the refrigerator was the only thing we knew about saving some money for a rainy day? Well, nothing has can still do today, what you did back in the day!  Drop loose change in your little piggy or cookie jar and watch how it grows.  Before you know it, you've got enough saved to begin your project! 

2.  52 Week Challenge - Here's an awesome way to save that I learned from my church. You can Google this challenge and find all kinds of charts you can use for this way to save.  It's a weekly discipline that decks the dollars away quickly, without you feeling like you are saving.  Each week you deposit an exact amount of money that equals to that particular week of the year, finishing at 52 weeks. 
Example:  Week 1=1$, Week 2=2$, etc; and so on and so forth. Clever, right?   At the end of the year, you've saved well over $1000 to start a nice size plan to decorate and refresh!

3. Out of Sight, Out of Mind - This idea is easy.  Set up an arrangement with your financial instituition to set aside a certain amount of money before you get your check or direct deposit. Decide on a comfortable amount to save and setup the withdrawal.  After awhile, you won't even think about it anymore.  Keep letting it accumulate until you are ready to get started on your decorating, then pull some or all the extra cash out to get going!
