Home Help: Where do You Shop?

A little while ago I wrote a post about decorating my backyard. Let me tell you, I have done nothing since said writing. But I have finally decided it's time to do something. ANYTHING. Whether it's inside, outside, whatever. I am in dire need of help! The good thing is, after being here for this length of time, I'm finally ready to start decorating. It's as if I'm finally getting the courage to tell a boy that I like him, or something.
Anyway, I need your help. I don't have time to DIY. I love you if that's your thing. I'm utterly blown away and impressed but I'm just not that creative.

So my question is, where do you find all the fun/cute/awesome/pretty things to put in your home? I scan pinterest, but once I click the link it's always out of my price range. I really need it to be cheap. I love Pottery Barn and Z Gallerie but I'm not about to pay $58 for a pillow or $97 for a coffee tray table that I'll never use.
 For your viewing pleasure, and because this has nothing to do with anything, here's what Michael and I look like. I think this will help you with the design elements of our home. 



So spill your secrets! Where do you shop for home decorations?



Whether you own a home or not, here's a fun quiz about home buying!

  4. Home Goods, Target (especially the end-of-aisle clearance shelves!), and websites like Wayfair, Joss and Main, and One Kings Lane. I also just love exploring cute little stores whenever I find them, you can sometimes find reasonably priced decor at local shops.

  5. Target, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, HomeGoods. Also groopdealz.com usually has some pretty cute things every now and then.

  6. HOBBY LOBBY! Honestly they have so many cute little knick knacks, tables, bureaus, wardrobes, bins and boxes, etc. Everything you can imagine! Also, I'm a HUGE thrifter - little antique/thrift shops are the greatest places to find those one-of-a-kind pieces. Good luck!

  10. you know i'm the cheapest person around so i always zoom in on all sales. i shop at winners (aka TJ Maxx) or any of those discount stores. don't discount thrift shops or consignment shops - people get rid of the most amazing things that you can find in there.

    i also shop off season so that means summer stuff during end of summer/fall or last year's inventory. november is also a good time to shop as they're trying to get rid of their current year inventory/styles to make room for next years styles/inventory.

    happy one year!!! i always forget mine as well...the past 6 years i've pretty much forgotten.
    looking forward to reading you many years more :)

  11. Target is where it's at, girl! TJ Maxx and Marshalls are great, too!

  12. Omg Home Goods, TJMaxx and Marshall's. Best pillows, wall decor and what nots. Rugs also. Happy hunting!

  13. I think you might find some good luck looking at thrift shops and things. It takes a whole lot of patience and looking, but try that. I was able to find a bunch of stuff for our wedding that way, and we had the cutest knick knacks there.

  14. World Market has cool stuff - I bought my coffee table online from them.

  15. Okay I love West Elm and I've also found some inexpensive but cute pieces at Ross/TJ Max/Marshalls type stores. I think decorating well (on a budget) takes time hunting for great pieces. I can't wait to be at a point that I have a home I can decorate. It's so fun!

  16. I find a lot of my cute decorations at places like TJ Maxx and Marshals. Then again I'm kinda cheap and don't like spending money so there's that. I also enjoy garage sales and repurposing things on my own.

  17. Home Goods, TJ Maxx, Target, and Etsy are always place I look for home items.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Adding onto all the TJ Maxx and Home Goods fans -- also Craigslist, but it's a total crapshoot so you'd have to be patient. Cost Plus World Market and Pier 1 can have good deals if you look for sales and coupons.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hobby Lobby & Home Goods - total life savers. I have Pottery Barn taste & a Wal-Mart budget, so I totally feel your pain!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I buy the majority of my home decor from Target, IKEA, and Bed, Bath, & Beyond. I also love Old Time Pottery (not sure if there are any out by you, but if so definitely check that out too!)

    ReplyDelete
  21. P.S. Don't ever go into Bed, Bath, & Beyond without a 20% off coupon ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  22. TJ Maxx, Ross, places like that. Also Target when stuff is on sale. I'm SUPER cheap. Hobby Lobby! They have a lot of great things and usually half the store is 50%. What's on sale changes weekly. Also, there's always a 40% off coupon you can get on your phone (or print) to use on anything not on sale.

  23. My whole apartment is Ikea and I think that is pretty evident.

    ReplyDelete
  24. i like ikea as well but its so far away i dont actually own anything (yet). i'm cheap and i like to go to goodwill or peddlers mall, craigslist / yard sales. also target, homegoods... bed bath and beyond.. my house isnt super cute though, so...

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ikea, Target, World Market, West Elm, sometimes HomeGoods, but more importantly: Craigslist! If there is something I really like from another place but can't afford it, I'll see if I can find it on Craigslist.

  26. I am all about Target online with free in store pickup! Make sure you log into Ebates first and then purchase your Target items. 1. You get cash back. 2. You don't pay shipping and 3. You can go pick it up in like 3 hours! Instant gratification! WOOP WOOP!

  27. I get a lot of stuff for my home at Homegoods, TJ Maxx, Hobby Lobby, At Home (used to be Garden Ridge), Target, Big Lots, Z Gallery (when on sale!), Pier 1 and Kirklands.

    Also, a there are a lot of facebook groups in my area that are like Craigslist that do trading and usually have great deals and it is a little less sketch then Craigslist.

  28. HomeGoods, TJ Maxx, World Market, and really anywhere and everywhere.

  29. Walmart.com has actually been my newest found secret. You see, they don't just sell typical Walmart stuff, they sell from external sites like Wayfair.com, so you get awesome stuff at cheaper prices. Otherwise, thrifting and TJ Maxx/Marshals are my go-to's. Oh and Big Lots. They have done me pretty well, surprisingly!

  30. Oh snap, Helena, I took that quiz and got a 6/6 XD Guess I should buy a house!!! Haha I know nothing about design but in any case, I love that photo for your decorating inspiration. That's just too good, it's gold! Good luck with the designing!
