This post is a little late, but better late than never.
Since we decided to stay in our house, I knew it was time to start decorating. Granted when I started it was one week before Halloween, so I didn’t want to go completely crazy with Halloween decorations.
This summer I was obsessed with garage sales. I am under this impression now where “why would I go pay full price for this when I can get it at a garage sale or at the dollar store?!” Anyways, I attended a garage sale that had a ton of Halloween decorations. We bought a witch that ties on a tree and a blow up ghost for $5!! Such a great deal!
My next stop was Ruhlig’s Farm and Gardens, which is a market with merchandise and produce from a local farm. And let me tell you, shopping small business is WORTH IT!! We bought 3 bunches of corn stalks, 2 bales of hay, 2 huge pumpkins, and 2 mums for $37.00!! Talk about a great deal!!!
One thing I have always struggled with is wanting fake flowers in the house, but they are so expensive! Plus, I felt like I could never get it right. Like the flowers would look bad together or I thought they would look ugly. Well boy was I wrong. First, did you know that the dollar store has like EVERYTHING?! Seriously, I was able to get 2 bunches of flowers for $2. Luckily, I already had the vases, but they totally have nice vases too!! I know where I am going each season from now on!
My final goal was for the stove. I had these OLD, RATTY towels hanging out on the stove. I always remembered that my mom had new towels each season, but I never actually did it. Pure laziness. I went to Kohl’s and was able to find this super cute 2-pack of towels that cost $3!!
Overall, I would say my Fall decorations worked out for the best!! =)
Note: The Friday before Halloween, I was able to buy an “EEK” sign and a Halloween towel from Joann Fabrics for $13. I forgot to take pictures of these decorations! =(
