Quick Decor Items on a Budget

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Family Dollar. All opinions are 100% mine.

I'm pretty crafty. :) But you all know that already! So I have the ability to crank out some fun decorative items for my home. Not everyone can do that though, and my mother in law is no exception. Not only is she not crafty, but she also lives on a very fixed income. She receives her social security and that's it. So any type of decorating has to fall within a very tight budget. Recently, she lost pretty much everything she had, meager as it may have been.

Bedbugs. Ack! Just gives you the heeby-jeebies thinking about it doesn't it? Somehow the apartment building she lives in became infested. Now you have to know my mother in law to understand this next part I'm going to tell you. She's obsessively clean. In the past when she has visited she leaves our house sparkling. Ha! She wipes, she washes, she scrubs. She washes dishes in water so hot you'd think her skin would come off! Needless to say, the bedbug thing freaked her out pretty bad.

Understandably she's a bit concerned about buying items from thrift stores now that she's experienced this. So we were trying to come up with ideas to help her replenish what she has lost through budget friendly means. That's when I found out that Family Dollar now carries home decor items! She will be able to get a new bathroom set for just $15.00 and some decorative items for her bedroom for much less than she'll pay even at a discount department store.

I was pretty pleased when I found out that Family Dollar would be carrying new items, it gives my mother in law piece of mind that the items are new and they will fall within her fixed budget. She'll be heading over there soon to pick out some fun colors for her bathroom!

Family Dollar is currently offering a $5.00 off coupon for your purchase of $25.00 or more. So why not go in and check out their new digs? You know you need some fun dollar store craft supplies anyway! I think I'll be checking out the bathroom ensembles for my downstairs bath...

Hurry though, The Family Dollar Home D├ęcor Coupon expires on February 7th!
