So I read all kinds of frugal blogs. They range from being minimalists to having quite the decor. I am somewhere in the middle. I don't like clutter but I find minimalism a bit "cold" if that makes sense.
I love to read Brenda's and Deanna's blogs. They have a love of beauty on a budget. I've been reading Cait Flander's blog for a couple of years now. She turned her financial world around by going on a 2 year buying fast and embracing minimalism. She left her "corporate job" and now free lances. I commented on one of her recent posts about what she bought the last 2 years. I explained how some frugal bloggers create pantries on a budget to help them in times of sickness or job loss. If your only goal is to be a minimalist then would you have a pantry to fall back on?
So..............how do you make your home warm without breaking the bank? I am not all that creative but I do love candles. Yankee Candles to be exact. Yes they can be quite expensive however I buy them when they are on special. Plus Yankee Candles last me a very long time. I find that candles give a warmth to any room and I also love the scents. Home Sweet Home and Apple Spice are my two favorite scents.
We are looking to replace curtains in our den and kitchen but do not want to spend much money. I will look at places like Walmart and Home Depot first.
