How can I decorate my home on a tight budget?

Home decor doesn't have to be a huge financial investment as long as you're proactive, resourceful and smart about it. So, the good news is, if you've had your heart set on redoing your kitchen or updating your living room, it's possible to accomplish this on a reasonable budget. Here are some tips you may want to consider when it comes to decorating your home on the cheap: 

Asking for help – Chances are, you know someone who is good with a set of tools, another person who can paint and so on and so forth. Perhaps there is a way to barter with your friends and family to get them to assist you with your project, even if it's simply cooking them dinner to thank them.

Doing it yourself – Thanks to websites such as Pinterest, there is a plethora of DIY tutorials and visual aids online that can help you achieve almost any at-home task. Before you hire a professional, figure out if it's something you can do on your own.

Making a list – When you have a vision in mind for your home, it's important to be able to narrow it down and determine what is realistic and what is not. By dividing your list into sections like "must-have" and "nice-to-have," you can prioritize your needs versus your wants. 

Shopping secondhand – Before making a big purchase, see if it's something you can find at a thrift store or on Craigslist. You can get some really great stuff for very little money this way.
