Updating your home on a SAHM Salary
There are better ways to save money than having to crawl under a rock and hide. I know that may be dramatic, but in today’s day and age, it seems that may be the only way to actually save a few pennies. A cup of coffee went from change in the bottom of your purse to having to budget to “just one per week.” A haircut can cost more than filling up a truck with diesel gasoline and going out to dinner is something to have to plan and save for months in advance.
Motherhood is a treat and it’s one of the greatest blessings as a woman today. It’s a fulltime job but it is also one of the most rewarding things in this world. As a mom, it’s hard to find time for yourself, especially when it comes to decorating or redecorating your home. As moms, we put ourselves last and our home updating just barely above us. I mean, we rarely have a free moment to get it together, let alone the house! Who has time to even think about updating the kitchen when the baby is screaming and your husband is working late?
Every mom needs a home that make her feel proud to have people visit, not hide under the bed every time someone knocks on the door. Let’s make that home visitor-friendly, shall we?
- Don’t actually spend a fortune, just let it look like you did- With stores like Wickes to remind us that we really can have it all with just a simple click, you can actually use it to decorate your dream home just as easily as booking your next trip. Look for offers for and help turn your living room into a wintery, rustic oasis.
- Put out a bowl of lemons- No, seriously. Or any other sort of fruit as your centerpiece will do just fine. Color and aroma will add to your guests’ experience.
- DIY-Not = DIY ( Do it Yourself) is getting more and more popular with the growth of sites like Pinterest. Every day we experiment with new home projects or ways to keep our kids busy, but did you know that DIY has its advantages with homes as well? You will be surprised by what you can do with a few mason jars and tree branches.
